Curacao Contracts Adacel for ATC Tower Simulation System

ORLANDO, Fla.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Adacel (ASX:ADA) announced today it has been awarded a contract by Netherlands Antilles Air Traffic Control N.V. (NAATC) of Curacao to provide a MaxSim Air Traffic Control (ATC) Tower simulation system.

“Adacel is proud to be selected by Curacao to support its ATC program with our advanced simulation technology”

The Adacel MaxSim TSS will incorporate an 8-channel, 270-degree field-of-view, LCD visual system. It will include generic and site specific airport databases and could be used in both initial air traffic control training as well as follow-on unit qualification training for local and ground control positions. The system will include working positions for a supervisor and a pseudo pilot. Adacel is scheduled to deliver the system to the NAATC in Willemstad, Curacao in April 2011.

“Adacel is proud to be selected by Curacao to support its ATC program with our advanced simulation technology,” said Fred Sheldon, Adacel’s CEO North America. “Curacao plays an important role in the air traffic control network of the highly popular Caribbean tourist destinations and Adacel is pleased to assist in the development of their air traffic control capabilities.”

Adacel’s ATC simulation systems have proven to be very effective in developing higher proficiency levels at an earlier stage in controller training. They reduce considerably the work involved in the conduct of training and can significantly decrease the length of the qualification period for controllers. The MaxSim ATC simulators have also proven to be a valuable tool to enable prior testing and training for procedural changes necessitated by temporary and permanent alterations to airports and airspace.
