Micro Nav complete Factory and Site Acceptance Testing for Venezuela and SMATSA

- Bournemouth, U.K.

Micro Nav Limited has completed two acceptance tests: a successful Site Acceptance Test (SAT) and a Factory Acceptance Test (FAT) with different clients.  The SAT involved the upgrade of the BEST Radar Simulator in Belgrade with the SMATSA Aviation Academy (SAA, www.saa.rs) which operates as part of Serbia and Montenegro Air Traffic Services (SMATSA) LLC. For the FAT, Micro Nav supported its partner GECI Group (www.geciweb.com), who conducted a full test program for its Venezuelan customer. The tested system, a 360-degree BEST 3D Tower comprised 84” LCD panels with 15 controller, radar and pseudo pilot positions. The installation, due for completion later this year will now be shipped to Venezuela and installed prior to the Micro Nav team delivering the onsite training package.


The final phase of the radar simulator for SMATSA was delivered to Belgrade at the end of June. This was a large scale and sophisticated simulator and inevitably the Project Team had to overcome challenges to ensure that the final delivery was completed on time. The success of this final phase was the result of the tireless effort and commitment of the Micro Nav and SMATSA teams working together to achieve a common objective.

The 18 month project included the integration of modules such as Micro Nav’s Arrivals Manager (AMAN) and Voice Communication System (VCS) which included Speech Recognition.
Alex Bangert, Head of Programmes at Micro Nav said, “Micro Nav would like to gratefully acknowledge the assistance and support of SMATSA who’s collaboration has been critical to the success of this project. Micro Nav is proud of its association with SMATSA IIc and is pleased to look forward to completion of the upgrade to the 3D Simulator and future collaboration with an important and highly valued customer.”

Venezuelan FAT with GECI

In August Micro Nav supported GECI in the completion of the FAT in Spain. Thorough preparation and collaboration by GECI and Micro Nav ensured that GECI were able to demonstrate an impressive level of realism to their End Customer, which ensured that acceptance was achieved efficiently and to the satisfaction of all parties.
The realism is complimented by doubling up on functionality. The system consists of 10 84” flat panel displays, which are configured to run as one 360° or two 180° BEST 3D Towers using Micro Nav’s 10 Channel Image Generation system.

Alex Bangert, Head of Programmes at Micro Nav said, “Micro Nav is proud of its long term association with GECI, and we look forward to many successful future collaborations with these important and highly valued integrators. This project continues an association which has seen GECI and Micro Nav work together to deliver simulator solutions in the Caribbean, Africa, Asia and South America.”
