Adacel acquires CSC’s NexSim business

Adacel and Computer Sciences Corporation (CSC) have signed and closed a definitive agreement for the sale of the CSC NexSim ATC simulator line and associated support services.

Terms of the agreement were not released, but effective immediately Adacel has acquired full rights to the NexSim product line and source code from CSC. Adacel will now assume responsibility for the NexSim training systems and any ongoing support services. The two companies are working closely to ensure a seamless transition without interruption to existing customer programmes.

Adacel’s ATC simulators have proven to be very effective in developing higher proficiency and accelerating the learning process of controllers during their course of study and ongoing training. The sompany said it is committed to designing advanced systems that provide ATC students with the realistic hands-on practice to reinforce learning the advanced skills required to be a competent controller.

Adacel is a developer of advanced simulation and training solutions, speech recognition applications and operational air traffic management systems. Adacel is particularly well known for innovations within the ATC simulation and speech recognition fields. The company’s products are widely used throughout North America, Europe, the Middle East and the Asia Pacific region.

“We are excited to expand our support of the FAA’s Collegiate Training Initiative. Adacel has been a leading supplier to the programme with our MaxSim ATC simulators and with this acquisition we now have systems at more than 95 per cent of the schools in the CTI programme,” said Seth Brown, CEO Adacel.
