Polish Air Navigation Services Agency (PANSA) has awarded Micro Nav a contract to modernise its existing BEST simulator suite, including a 3-year support agreement.
PANSA is one of Micro Nav’s largest installations at an Air Navigation Service Provider (ANSP), consisting of a 360° BEST 3D simulator, four 3-Channel BEST Tower simulators and over twenty BEST Radar workstations. Located at the new state of the art training facility in Warsaw, the modernisation contract includes an upgrade to the latest BEST software platform, further software enhancements and four new BEST Tower Foundation systems.
BEST Tower Foundation is Micro Nav’s new low-cost simulation product, first launched at World ATM Congress in Madrid in 2018. BEST Tower Foundation is fully loaded with the BEST simulation engine, including a single position with speech-recognition function, and is geared towards affordability for air navigation service providers seeking additional training capability at a low cost, and for airports and customers looking at a compact and powerful simulation solution.
The delivery elements of the contract are to be complete in time for the Micro Nav BEST User Group to be hosted by PANSA in Warsaw in June 2019.
Janusz Sokolowski, Technical Support for Training Team Leader at PANSA, commented: “We are truly honoured to be hosting the 2019 BEST User Group in Warsaw. The BEST simulator will be modernised and expanded ahead of the event, where PANSA will demonstrate its world leading position as an ANSP and training organisation.”
Michael Saunders, Sales & Marketing Director at Micro Nav, said: “BEST Tower Foundation allows self-learning at low cost and PANSA has adopted this ethos as an additional capability to its already significant and powerful capability. Micro Nav is looking forward to the BEST User Group in 2019. Warsaw is a fantastic city and PANSA is a great host, customer and site.”
