Adacel Technologies Limited and the United States Air Force (USAF) representatives commemorated 20 years of collaboration with a ceremony during the Joint Service ATC Symposium, in Myrtle Beach, South Carolina.

In 2002, USAF awarded its first major ATC Training Simulation Systems (TSS) contract to Adacel. Over 1.5 million lines of unique software code later, Adacel successfully delivered its MaxSim TSS to thousands of users over the years at 91 USAF locations worldwide. These modern systems showcase high-fidelity military ATC functionality, complex tactical flight patterns tailored to the USAF, hundreds of scenarios with high-accuracy visuals, and broad functionality. The first system was installed in October 2002 at Eglin Air Force Base in the western Florida Panhandle. Additional contracts have followed in 2014 and 2018.

“The USAF contracts have played a critical role in Adacel’s success over the last 20 years. We have built, deployed, and diligently maintained the MaxSim training systems with a keen focus in mind: to provide customized, world-class ATC training solutions for the US Air Force’s air traffic controllers to fully support the organization’s critical missions and military preparedness,” shares Daniel Verret, Adacel’s CEO.

Edgar A. Wright, Executive Director, Headquarters Air Force Flight, Standards Agency, added: “The MaxSim tower simulator has been a highly capable and reliable product, that has trained over 8,000 US Air Force military controllers during the past two decades.”
