UFA, Inc. (UFA), a leading provider of Air Traffic Simulation and Voice Technologies, announced that it has been selected by Skyguide, Swiss Air Navigation Services Ltd, to deliver UFA’s suite of air traffic control training solutions including flagship products ATCoach, ATTower, ATVoice and ATSpeak. Also part of the multi-year contract is UFA’s ATCloud delivery system for simulation training over the Internet or Intranet.
UFA’s solutions will replace Skyguide’s legacy simulators with the objectives of reducing simulation operating costs, increasing performance of students, simulation pilots, and instructors, and providing state-of-the-art data management that can interface with Skyguide’s operational systems and deploy on Skyguide’s internal virtualized platforms for delivery of operational and training systems.
David Wolff, CEO of UFA, remarked, “We are extremely pleased to add Skyguide to our roster of FABEC members DFS Deutsche Flugsicherung, German Air Force, Belgian Defense, LVNL (Netherlands), and DSNA (France), and also EUROCONTROL SESAR, all of whom have effectively deployed UFA products for controller training or ATM research. Skyguide will be able to leverage capabilities already provided to our current customers as it grows its civil and military training operations.”
Skyguide’s Beat Spielmann notes, “After intensive market analysis and prototype testing, UFA’s suite of simulators proved to deliver the highest level of quality at the most beneficial cost for Skyguide”.
