Polish Air Navigation Services Agency to modernise its Micro Nav BEST Simulator
08 January 2019
Polish Air Navigation Services Agency (PANSA) has awarded Micro Nav Limited (Micro Nav) a contract to modernise its existing BEST simulator suite, including a 3-year support agreement.PANSA is one of Micro Nav’s largest installations at an Air Navigation Service Provider, consisting of a 360° BEST 3D simulator, four 3-Channel BEST Tower simulators and over twenty BEST Radar workstations. Located at the new state of the art training facility in Warsaw, the modernisation contract includes an upgrade to the latest BEST software platform, further software enhancements and four new BEST Tower Foundation systems.
BEST Tower Foundation is Micro Nav’s new low-cost simulation product, first launched at World ATM Congress in Madrid in 2018. BEST Tower Foundation is fully loaded with the BEST simulation engine, including a single position with speech-recognition function, and is geared towards affordability for air navigation service providers seeking additional training capability at a low cost, and for airports and customers looking at a compact and powerful simulation solution.
The delivery elements of the contract are to be complete in time for the Micro Nav BEST User Group to be hosted by PANSA in Warsaw in June 2019.
Janusz Sokolowski, Technical Support for Training Team Leader at PANSA commented, “We are truly honoured to be hosting the 2019 BEST User Group in Warsaw. The BEST simulator will be modernised and expanded ahead of the event, where PANSA will demonstrate its world leading position as an ANSP and training organisation.”
Michael Saunders, Sales & Marketing Director at Micro Nav said, “BEST Tower Foundation allows self-learning at low cost and PANSA has adopted this ethos as an additional capability to its already significant and powerful capability. Micro Nav is looking forward to the BEST User Group in 2019. Warsaw is a fantastic city and PANSA is a great host, customer and site.”

Winner of the Queen’s Award for Innovation 2016
Micro Nav received the Innovation Award for its Automatic Display Alignment System (ADAS) used in 3D air traffic control simulators and training systems. These simulators rely on the use of multiple projectors to present a simulated view that would be seen from a control tower at an airport. Historically, setting up and maintaining the calibration of multiple projector arrays has been achieved manually by skilled specialist engineers.
BEST is the ATC training and simulation solution from Micro Nav. BEST stands for Beginning to End for Simulation and Training. BEST is a single solution product covering all training requirements from ab-initio to TRUCE.
In August 2012, Micro Nav joined the Quadrant Group of companies, adding world-class Air Traffic Control simulation systems to the Quadrant Flight Simulation portfolio.
Established in 1994, the Quadrant Group is collectively active in flight training services and flight simulation relocations, updates, products, manufacturing and maintenance. Along with Micro Nav, the Group includes: Quadrant Systems Limited, Quadrant Simulation Systems Inc, and Quest Flight Training Limited.
