Micro Nav Limited nominated for Jane’s ATC Awards 2019

BEST 3D Aircraft Carrier

Micro Nav is proud to have been nominated for this year’s Jane’s ATC Awards, which celebrate improvements in ATC and airspace management. Micro Nav has been nominated in the category for Technology, which was announced by Jane’s Airport Review last week.

A new Military Air Systems Control Simulator (MASCS) and Simulated Air Traffic Management Training Facility was delivered to the UK Royal Navy. The simulators are operational, making a critical contribution to the Royal Navy’s Air Traffic Control, Air Battle Management and Aircraft Control Training Mission.

The MASCS implementation integrated the functionality of the Royal Navy School of Fighter Control’s legacy BEST Fighter Aircraft Control Training System and the Royal Navy School of Aircraft Control’s Helicopter Control Trainer to create an enhanced training capability on a shared architecture and platform. The simulated environment included emulation of the Royal Navy’s Combat Management System to provide the highest levels of simulation fidelity and realism. The Simulated Air Traffic Management Training Facility is an on-board training system which provides a high-resolution 3D rendered view from the HMS Queen Elizabeth aircraft carrier Flying Control island, in addition to a simulated total ship and maritime airspace environment.

BEST, Beginning to End for Simulation and Training, is a single-solution product, providing the user with a customisable, scalable and flexible solution for all their simulation needs.
