Adacel received a new contract award from the Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) following a competitive bid process. Valued at USD$59 million over five years, this contract will encompass a comprehensive range of services connected with the existing installed network of Tower Simulation Systems (TSS), including the maintenance and support of the TSS hardware and a full-scale technical refresh for all major components within the TSS large and small systems and TSS Mobile Units.
"As the FAA TSS software Original Equipment Manufacturer (OEM), Adacel brings unique knowledge and unparalleled experience with these systems, which will ensure minimal disruptions to training throughout the program's duration. We are steadfastly committed to making robust, consistent training a daily reality at the FAA," shared Daniel Verret, Adacel's CEO.
The scope of the TSS program support includes a comprehensive Help Desk support staffed by highly skilled technical and Air Traffic Control Subject Matter Experts (SMEs), access to Adacel’s Training System Support Center (TSSC), the deployment of on-site Field Service Representatives/Technicians (FSRs/FSTs), and the use of Adacel's Web-Based Integrated Data Environment (WIDE) data repository. There are no material conditions that need to be satisfied before the agreement becomes legally binding.
