UFA, Inc., a leading provider of Air Traffic Control (ATC) simulation and voice technologies, announced today that its ATTower Tower Simulator was used by SESAR to demonstrate new solutions for airport ground traffic management during a 3-day series of demonstration sessions in March 2014. These demonstrations took place at the Tower Simulation lab at EUROCONTROL’s Experimental Centre (EEC) in Brétiny sur Orge, France. The SESAR Program is developing various safety tools and brings up further solutions for Air Traffic Controllers to train with real situations such as:
Said UFA’s CEO David Wolff “ATTower has become an industry standard for high-fidelity tower and approach training, and these SESAR activities also demonstrate the power of ATTower to support a wide variety of research activities. We are thrilled that ATTower’s capacity to model new standards and procedures is being used by Eurocontrol and SESAR in their R&D efforts.”
ATTower is a multifaceted simulation tool with comprehensive interfacing capabilities. The product can be fully tailored to client specifications in order to duplicate existing or projected airport conditions and integrate with current or future airport ATM systems. UFA’s ATTower simulator at EEC, installed in 2013, offers a 4-channel out-of-window-view covering 180 degrees. The simulator is extensively used for R&D tasks.
