The BEST Air Defence simulators provide comprehensive training for fighter controllers. Training applications range from perfecting basic skills up to participation in multi-user combat scenarios.


Micro Nav has received the Queen's Award for Innovation for its Automatic Display Alignment System (ADAS) used in 3D air traffic control simulators and training systems. These simulators rely on the use of multiple projectors to present a simulated view that would be seen from a control tower at an airport. Historically, setting up and maintaining the calibration of multiple projector arrays has been achieved manually by skilled specialist engineers. 

This is the second time Micro Nav, a leading specialist company developing and supplying air traffic control and air defence simulators and training systems, has received the Queen’s Award for Enterprise. 

Managing Director, Stephen Williams said, “We are delighted to receive our second Queen’s Award. This award for Innovation reflects the high-calibre staff within Micro Nav and the on-going investment that Micro Nav has made in its products to ensure that its customers are able to deliver high-quality training in the most efficient way. In a very competitive market-place the prestige of the Queen’s Award will help us secure further business in our chosen markets”.
