The Ministry of Defence of the Sultanate of Oman, have recently placed an order with Micro Nav in the UK for a range of the BEST ATM simulators for the Oman Aircraft Control College (OACC), which is jointly owned by BAE Systems. The major order includes BEST radar and tower simulators with special military features as well as an advanced fighter controller system. The project integrates 18 Controller, 21 Pseudo-Pilot and a suite of Data Preparation and Support positions.
The BEST simulators will be used for a wide range of military and civil controller training courses run at the College.
The simulators will be installed, accepted and incorporated into the College courses under a very fast schedule to minimise disruption to the training programme. A mini area radar simulator was installed and used for training within days of the order being placed. The full commissioning, testing and user training schedule is due to be completed during June 2007.
This order extends Micro Nav’s presence in the region with users in Dubai, Abu Dhabi, Sharjah and Bahrain.
Micro Nav have a successful 19 year track record of supplying and supporting ATM simulators for national civil and military authorities world wide.
