Lockheed Martin on Friday announced plans to deploy three air traffic management training and simulation systems for the air navigation services provider of Kazakhstan, Kazeronavigatsia.
The three systems will be installed at en route air traffic control towers in Almaty, Astana and Aktobe. Each training system will feature ATCoach training suite, a training technology provided by Lockheed Martin's air traffic management system and training partner UFA. Skyline, Lockheed's air traffic management system, is the system being deployed.
“Realistic controller training is crucial to maintaining an effective national air traffic management system,” said Sandy Samuel, vice president of transportation solutions for Lockheed Martin information systems.
The deployment of the new systems is the result of a $49.9 million contract signed in 2010 for Lockheed to deploy additional Skyline air traffic management automation systems through 2025.
