Adacel Flight Controller Simulator

Close to home, Logan Airport, is doing something close to my heart by mimicking a control tower for training new controllers and workers.  In addition to what looks like 7+ rear projected monitors making up the video wall, the interactive simulation has voice recognition so spoken radio commands are translated to moving virtual airplanes for a native feel.

The system, designed by Adacel Systems Inc., will be deployed to 19 locations across North America as part of a $48 million dollar contract.  Logan will begin their instillation this fall.

I can see all the Microsoft Flight Simulator fans wanting a piece of this action, so I don’t know any other way to let  you down easier than saying it would probably cost you $2.5mil ($48mil / 19 locations) unless you do it yourself.

    The picture you are showing is not from the Boston install, it is 12 channel installation at Air Services Australia. It is a full 360 degree wrap around where the Boston install is 325 degrees and uses 10 channels or rear projection and 1 additional direct projection on a monitor.
