Burlington, MA, March 21st, 2017– UFA, Inc. (UFA), a leading provider of Air Traffic Simulation and Voice Technologies, announces that Munich Center completed the training of over 400 Controllers using simulations supported by ATVoice® voice recognition.
The DFS NEWSIM Training Platform, built on the ATCoach simulator with integrated ATVoice and incorporating DFS developed technology, integrates with the DFS P2 Automation System to provide a range of training capabilities for the Center.
For this specific training activity, all Controllers at the Center were required to perform training on a Fallback System situation. Over the period of 6 months, 400 Controllers successfully completed the training on NEWSIM using ATVoice.
UFA CEO David Wolff commented, “This achievement demonstrates the value of using voice recognition for all aspects of ATC training. The success of this training regimen illustrates UFA’s core focus which includes our ability to integrate with customer solutions and the maturity of our commitment to voice recognition technology. The Munich Controllers are able to perform at their typical working position and use our VRR to dynamically interact with the simulation situation.”
DFS VRR Project Manager Michael Slotty said, “Using VRR for the complete Munich Fallback Training is the breakthrough at DFS for the introduction of Voice Recognition and Response. It is planned to continue introducing this technology in the DFS training environment.”
