Adacel, an industry leader in software integration, simulation development, and speech recognition technology announced today that it has received an additional order in excess of $1 million ($US) to supply its MaxSim air traffic control Tower Simulator Systems (TSS) to the United States Marine Corps (USMC).
With this latest order, the USMC will purchase two (2) additional systems and one (1) additional database. The USMC will use these newest MaxSim simulators to enhance training capabilities at their Air Stations in Futenma, Japan and Quantico, Virginia. The additional database is for MCALF Bogue Field, NC.
