Micro Nav Limited has successfully completed the upgrade of the ATC simulator, incorporating its BEST ATC solution and 3D image generator software packages, for the Warsaw based Polish Air Navigation Services Agency (PANSA).

Simultaneously, a hardware refresh was undertaken by PANSA themselves to upgrade the PCs across the entire network to the latest specifications. The project was completed on schedule and to budget.

The installation, undertaken in early February, comprises a total of 24 Radar Controller and 16 Tower Controller training positions, together with 30 Pseudo Pilot positions to enable multiple simultaneous training scenarios to be undertaken in parallel. This provides various training requirements and exercises from ab-initio to refresher and validation purposes.

PANSA awarded the initial installation contract in 2010. This comprised a system including five 3D Tower simulator installations (one x 360° and four x 180°), as well as a Radar Simulator, with over 70 BEST nodes and image generators. This original system was installed to provide training for more than a dozen Polish airfields.
