CSC, based in Falls Church, Va., was selected to provide its NexSim Radar and Tower air traffic control simulation training systems to four universities. The company said it will provide a total of 32 NexSim Radar and three Tower simulators to Aims College, Greeley, Colo.; Elisabeth City State University, Elisabeth City, N.C.; Kent State University, Kent, Ohio; and Mount San Antonio College, Walnut, Calif. This technology simulates real operational environments found in today's busiest terminal and en-route radar facilities, the company said. "With CSC's technology, we will be able to simultaneously train tower, approach, departure and en-route air traffic controllers, and that new capability offers tremendous team enhancement, safety and operational benefits," said Verna Fitzsimmons, acting dean of Kent State University's Aviation Sciences Department. "This new addition to our curriculum will help us reach our goal to provide students and research partners with the highest quality of visual and simulation capabilities."
