UFA worked in close cooperation with KAT to deliver an ATTower system that added numerous features to meet the specific needs of the German Air Force. Air Force controllers will train on a new 360° projection system that includes multiple controller positions for Tower, Radar and PAR training. Realistic simulation of high performance aircraft and helicopters allows the German Air Force to train on complex military operations.
KAT joins a list of military customers such the US Navy, Army, Air Force, and Army National Guard; the Belgian Armed Forces; the Austrian Air Force; and the Israeli Air Force, all of whom use UFA products for controller training.
UFA CEO David Wolff commented, “We are excited to support KAT in its efforts to bring the highest-fidelity simulation systems to the German Air Force. Now Air Force controllers can use the same simulation technology that has proven so successful at other military organizations around the world.”
