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.

In August 2012, Micro Nav joined the Quadrant Group of companies, adding world-class Air Traffic Control simulation systems to the Quadrant Flight Simulation portfolio.
