UFA’s ATTower® with ATVoice™ Delivered to Kaufbeuren ATM Training

- Burlington, MA, USA.

UFA, Inc. announced that it has successfully delivered its ATTower Simulator with ATVoice Voice Recognition and Response (VRR) technology to Kaufbeuren ATM Training (KAT). KAT, a subsidiary of DFS Deutsche Flugsicherung GmbH (DFS), is responsible for the training of Bundeswehr (German Air Force) Air Traffic Controllers. As part of this delivery, ATTower and ATVoice were installed on trainee Microsoft Surface tablets.

The ability to have an ATTower Simulator with ATVoice on portable devices allows trainees to practice phraseology and part task training independently and without internet connection; supporting training anywhere, anytime. The speech recognition fully supports bilingual speech – German and English. A group of 15 students were the first to use the new capability as part of a Bundeswehr ATC course focusing on Ground Control Approaches.
During an in-class training, scholars practice Precision Approach Radar (PAR) position exercises with 1 to 1 instructor support.

Michael Moltchadski, the Project Lead who worked closely with the KAT team, remarked, “Feedback from the students and instructors after the training class was very positive. The students liked the innovative technology and the opportunity to train on their own. One instructor even emphasized the positive learning effect of the standard phraseology, which is achieved using our industry leading ATVoice VRR technology.”

Support for Tower and Airport Surveillance Approach (ASR) Radar positions will be introduced in Summer 2018. The next phase includes the transfer of fundamental large-scale Tower and Radar simulation exercises to tablet computers provided with ATVoice VRR. Ultimately KAT and the Bundeswehr students will have access to VRR capabilities in the complete simulation environment, a 360-degree Tower Simulator with bilingual English/German speech recognition for Tower, Ground (aircraft and vehicles), PAR and ASR Radar positions.
