Adacel ATC Simulation System Accredited by US Army

ORLANDO, Fla.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Adacel (ASX:ADA) announced today that the Company’s air traffic control (ATC) simulators in use with the United States Army Reserve (USAR) at Fort Rucker have been officially accredited for training by the US Army.

“We are particularly pleased to have our ATC systems validated through the US Army’s rigorous accreditation process.”

Dubbed the ATTAFS (Air Traffic, Tower, ATNAVICS & Fixed Base PAR Simulator), the accreditation covers Adacel’s Tower, Radar and ATNAVICS/FP-PAR simulation systems. This is a significant milestone for Adacel and US Army Reserve ATC. The Adacel ATC simulators can be used by all US Army, Army Reserve and Army National Guard ATC units to train both tactical and fixed base air traffic controllers. With the accreditation, US Army Training Circular (TC) 3-04.81 (FM 3-04.303), ATC Facility Operations, Training, Maintenance, and Standardization permits simulator time on the Adacel systems to be credited for up to 50 percent of a controller’s live operational training requirements. This will help units to expedite and maintain controller unit qualification and proficiency.

“Adacel is committed to providing the best simulators possible for all of our clients’ needs worldwide,” said Fred Sheldon, Adacel’s CEO North America. “We are particularly pleased to have our ATC systems validated through the US Army’s rigorous accreditation process.”

Adacel’s ATC simulators are used extensively throughout the world for ATC training and for air traffic procedures testing and validation. These systems can be operated using human pseudo pilots or with Adacel’s embedded intelligent speech processing applications that can eliminate the need for human role players. Within the United States Adacel has deployed over 200 ATC simulators with all branches of the US Department of Defense, the Federal Aviation Administration (FAA), and many educational institutions supporting ATC training and recruitment through the FAA’s Collegiate Training Initiative (CTI) program.
