PM ATC New Equipment Training (NET) Team

ACCESS TEAM CENTECH (Huntsville, AL, May 18, 2018) In support of the Air Traffic Control (ATC) Product Management Office, Quantum Research has been tasked to achieve and maintain compliance with civil, military, domestic and international air traffic control as well as combat identification requirements and mandates. We remain ready to meet all future aviation operational requirements.

Team Quantum supports the four primary Army ATC facilities and mission areas: Tower; Ground Controlled Approach and Surveillance Radar; Flight Following and Airspace Management; and Expeditionary Terminal Control. Our efforts provide Tactical (Expeditionary) and Fixed-Base ATC systems that enable safe operations of Army, Joint, and Civil Aircraft.

Our team has conducted more than 1200 training support events held at more than 75 CONUS/OCONUS locations supporting Operator, Maintainer, Systems Administration, and Instructor and Key Personnel Training.

Our training activities are conducted by performing task analysis, developing Training Support Packages (TSP) to include Programs of Instruction (POI), Lesson Plans, Student Handouts, and Graphic Aids in the Training Development Capability (TDC) database tool.

Recently, we provided New Equipment Training (NET) training to a National Guard unit on the AN/MSQ-135A Mobile Tower System (MOTS).
