When we were presented with the opportunity to purchase a system that not only emulates real-world air traffic control but provides an outstanding platform for research and modeling in air traffic management, it was something we couldn’t turn down.

Kongsberg Geospatial, an Ottawa-based developer of real-time, mission critical, geospatial software technology announced today that Embry-Riddle Aeronautical University will be deploying their I-SIM ATM (Air Traffic Management) Modeling and Simulation software in their en-route and terminal air traffic control training labs.
Located in Daytona Beach, Florida, Embry-Riddle Aeronautical University is the largest and oldest aviation-focused university in the world. The school offers more than 80 degree programs, including aerospace engineering, aeronautical science, and a bachelor’s degree in air traffic management. Embry-Riddle Aeronautical University has been designated a Center of Excellence by the FAA (Federal Aviation Authority).
The I-SIM ATM modeling and simulation software has long been used by the FAA for Human Factors Engineering as well as complex airspace design and analysis work. With its high level of realism and ability to simulate real world en-route and terminal environments, I-SIM will deliver realistic ERAM (en route) and STARS (terminal) problems to students looking to enter the FAA workforce. Providing students with high fidelity “control room” like environments will allow Embry-Riddle Aeronautical University students to gain confidence by being exposed to FAA systems. With over 6000 controllers needed in the next 5…
