Hungarian Air Navigation Training Facilities Receives Tower Simulator
March 16, 2010 -
Adacel announced it has successfully completed site acceptance for their
MaxSim Tower Simulation System installed at the Hungarian Air Navigation
Services’ training facilities.
During the initial delivery Adacel installed a front projection 180-degree tower simulator with supporting components and airport visual databases.
The simulator will
be expanded to a full 360-degree continuous field-of-view during phase
two in 2011 when the system is moved to new facilities. The state of the
art tower simulator will complement the Adacel radar simulation systems
already relied on by HungaroControl in their training programs.
Attila Nafradi, Head of the Simulator Unit, stated “The cutting-edge
technology delivered by Adacel has opened a new dimension. The 3D Tower
simulator allows us to discover new depths in simulation training and
expand our training capabilities. The use of the new simulator has
resulted in increased realism. With the new simulator, simulation
training will be extended, increasing the efficiency of air traffic
The Hungarian ANS purchased their original Adacel radar simulation
system in 1997 and throughout their relationship Adacel has worked in
close cooperation to update system features to keep pace with
HungaroControl’s growing requirements.
“Providing the best tools to accomplish ATC training and planning has always been a top priority for Adacel” said Fred Sheldon, Adacel CEO North America. “It has been gratifying during our many years with HungaroControl to help them achieve their mission.”
simulation systems permit the development of higher proficiency levels
at an earlier stage in controller training. They reduce considerably the
work involved in the preparation and conduct of training and can
significantly decrease the length of the qualification period for
controllers. The MaxSim ATC simulators have also enabled prior testing
and training for procedural changes necessitated by temporary and
permanent alterations to airports and airspace.
Adacel’s technology revolutionizes speech applications for operational direct voice input control systems and interactive control of computer generated entities in training systems. The Company’s ATC simulators lead global efforts to safely optimize controller training. Their Aurora ATM includes capabilities envisaged for FAA NextGen and EUROCONTROL SESAR programs; providing enabling technology for initiatives to promote airspace efficiency and reduce aviation related carbon emissions.
