Lockheed Martin will deploy three new air traffic management training simulation systems for Kazakhstan’s air navigation services provider for training functions.
Kazeronavigatsia’s facilities in Almaty, Astana and Aktobe will implement the systems under a partnership with Lockheed that started in 2005, Lockheed announced Friday.
New systems set to be deployed include the Lockheed Martin's Skyline air traffic management system and training partner UFA's ATCoach training suite.
“Realistic controller training is crucial to maintaining an effective national air traffic management system,” said Sandy Samuel, vice president of transportation solutions for Lockheed’s information systems and global solutions business.
The company intends to help Kazakhstan build its capacity to develop air traffic management training systems.
