Adacel Systems won a contract from Lockheed Martin to provide a Simulated Air Traffic Control Environment software for Australia's Project AIR 5428 Pilot Training System.
The Project AIR 5428 Pilot Training System will provide the Australian Defence Force with a new training system to take pilots from flight screening through basic and advanced flying training, part of
which will include training on flight simulators. Adacel's Air Traffic Control in-a-Box (ATCiB) will supply a Simulated Air Traffic Control Environment (SATCE) for Flight Simulation Training Devices (FSTDs) that will complete the flight simulation experience with realistic virtual traffic and synthetic air traffic controllers to create a higher quality training environment.
To date, Adacel has sold more than 125 ATCiB licenses. ATCiB is compliant with ARINC 439, Guidance for Simulated Air Traffic Control Environments in Flight Simulation Training Devices as well as ICAO DOC 9625 Manual of Criteria for the Qualification of Flight Simulators Edition 4.
