Bournemouth, UK: February 2008 - This year Micro Nav celebrates 20 years of simulation success. The company looks back on an unbroken track record of developing, delivering and supporting Air Traffic Control simulation and training systems for civil and military authorities world wide. Mike Male and Fred Johnson founded Micro Nav in 1988. They are both experienced controllers and pilots with a rare combination of simulation, training and software skills. Their expertise and customer rapport were major factors in the success of FIRST – the original family of simulators. They are still key members of the team that continues to grow the company and innovate new products. During the first 10 years, FIRST was sold under an exclusive licence by Rediffusion Simulation and then Hughes Aircraft Company. It became recognised as a leading product with an enthusiastic user community in some 20 countries.
In 1998, Micro Nav launched the next generation of ATC simulators called BEST. BEST continues to pioneer new software techniques and to exploit the dramatic advances in PC technologies to deliver new levels of affordability, versatility and realism.
BEST has been embraced by FIRST users and is adding satisfied new recruits to the Micro Nav User Group. It is marketed directly by Micro Nav working with local partners focused on customers and programmes.
Micro Nav continues to be at the forefront of ATC simulation developing new features, products and services as well as delivering the benefits of third-party investments in PC software and hardware. For example, BEST has major stimulation capabilities delivering real time data in standard formats for the testing and evaluation of real ATC systems as well as providing the ultimate fidelity of on-console training.
Recently Micro Nav achieved launch sales of our new integrated 3D Image Generators, Fast Airport Builder Tool and Aircraft Model Editor.
We are unveiling our special 20th anniversary logo which we will use throughout the year.
Mike Male, Chief Executive Officer of Micro Nav Ltd said: “We are very proud of our unique track record and success in the ATC simulation and training market. I would like to thank all our customers for their support and the pleasure of our special relationships. We look forward to working with them and welcoming our new customers over our next decade.”
