ITT Defense recently signed a two-year agreement with Embry-Riddle Aeronautical University to provide its Symphony OpsVue flight tracking and situational awareness system for flight training programs at its Daytona Beach, Fla., and Prescott, Ariz., campuses.
ITT says the application will offer students a complete and accurate real-time view of airway and airport activity, which allows for safer and more efficient operations. The application is also based on a synthesis of all FAA air traffic en route with the surface surveillance data available in the U.S. National Airspace.
“As one of the earlier adopters of Automatic Dependent Surveillance-Broadcast technology, Embry-Riddle has been using cutting-edge technologies to train pilots since 1925,“ said John Kefaliotis, ITT“™s vice president of next generation transportation systems.
“We are proud to offer this powerful new resource to help pilots-in-training make real-time decisions based on a complete view of their operations,“ he said.
