Adacel announced today that the company’s multi-function Air Traffic Control (ATC) simulator, selected as the system of choice for the U.S. Army ATC Common Simulator program, has been officially accredited for training by the Army.
The ACS program will provide a single simulation air traffic control baseline to be supplied solely by Adacel for all Army and Guard units to train on both at home and when deployed to forward locations. Each simulator can support two operator positions simultaneously and can be connected together for collective tower and radar training scenarios. The compact Adacel simulators are easily transportable for rapid deployment and will provide the immersive, high-fidelity graphics environment needed to maintain the Army’s high state of readiness.
“Adacel is committed to the success of the Army’s ACS program”, said Seth Brown, Adacel CEO. “We are particularly pleased that the ACS has been validated through the U.S. Army’s rigorous accreditation process.”
Adacel’s ATC simulation systems have proven to be effective in the training of military and civilian air traffic controllers in the US. The Department of Defense will be able to save precious resources by taking full advantage of Adacel’s training technology already deployed throughout the other branches of the US Military and the Federal Aviation Administration. The simulators are designed to provide air traffic controllers with realistic hands-on practice that reinforces learning from the basics of phraseology and communications through the advanced skills required to be a fully qualified military controller as well as provide proficiency training allowing controllers to maintain their certifications.
