DFW Int. Airport selects Adacel to re-host driver training simulator systems
22 December 2015
Adacel has been selected by Dallas Fort Worth International Airport (DFW), TX, to re-host the airport’s driver training simulator systems. The contract value for the systems and associated system operator training will be up to USD 310,000. The existing DFW systems are older versions of Adacel’s airport driving simulator which will be upgraded to Adacel’s newly-released AeroDRIVE driving simulator platform and will enable DFW to expand their FAA Part 139 flight line driver training programme. The new systems include a site-specific 3D visual database depicting both the DFW airport as well as the landside environment. Speaking of the award, Gary Pearson, Adacel’s CEO, said: “It is very gratifying that DFW has again selected Adacel to provide the backbone systems for their extensive and successful driver training programme.” AeroDRIVE is a comprehensive simulator specifically designed to train vehicle operators to safely drive in an airport environment. The AeroDRIVE simulator includes a comprehensive suite of scenario creation tools to enable DFW instructors to define their own scenarios and modify key elements of the 3D environment. Optional modules are available to train for specific airport driving applications such as Airport Rescue & Fire Fighting.
