Woburn, MA, February 17, 2012 – UFA, INC., a leading provider of Air Traffic Control (ATC) simulation and voice technologies, announced today that Texas State Technical College in Waco, Texas, selected the ATTower® and ATCoach® products for its new, state-of-the-art radar and tower training facility.
With a six (6) channel HD LCD based ATTower tower training simulator, TSTC students will experience a “real world” airport environment with aircraft, ground vehicles, wild life, and simulated weather conditions. For en route and approach radar training, TSTC will implement a six position ATCoach radar simulator. ATCoach provides a comprehensive and high fidelity simulation for both en route and approach air space. A user friendly exercise creation environment allows TSTC staff to create and manage their simulation courseware.
The UFA ATRadio® product provides emulation of operational radio, telephony and intercom voice communications capability for the training environment. TSTC will also use UFA’s industry-leading ATVoice® voice recognition and response technology for voice-automated simulation, allowing greater access to training assets and enforcing proper voice communications.
The ATTower simulator installation and training activity at TSTC was completed to support the Spring 2012 Semester just 8 weeks after contract award. In May 2012 the Tower Simulator will be moved to the new facility and installation of the ATCoach radar simulator will be completed. Both the Tower and Radar training environments will support the same Airport and Airspace that the students will encounter upon entering the FAA Academy training program.
With the acquisition of the UFA simulation products, TSTC will offer training on the same products used by the FAA in its ERAM and STARS training programs. UFA products are also in extensive use by the U.S. Military, other FAA-CTI schools such as LeTourneau University, University of North Dakota and Daniel Webster College. International Air Navigation Service (ANS) providers such as EUROCONTROL, NAV CANADA, DGAC/DSNA France, LVNL Netherlands and DFS Germany are also extensively using UFA products for Training, Test and R&D.
