ORLANDO, Fla., 5 Nov. 2007. SimiGon Limited has delivered its Air Traffic Controller Trainer to the Israeli Air Force (IAF), representing the first deployment of the PC-based training system incorporating flight program content and ATC training functionality. The ATC trainer will be used in all parts of Air Traffic Controller training, including new cadets and experienced officers.

The delivery of this initial contract, which is worth $200,000 to SimiGon, increases the likelihood that the IAF will decide to exercise its option for additional systems.

SimiGon's Air Traffic Controller Trainer is based on the company's SIMbox and AirBook technology. Under the terms of the contract, more then 100 air traffic controllers will be trained per year. It is expected that the combination of voice recognition integrated with SimiGon's technology will significantly reduce the time spent by the trainees reaching their qualifications.

AirBook is SimiGon's aviation training software product based on the company's core product, SIMbox, a highly flexible, PC-based commercial off-the-shelf product providing government and industry partners with enabling technologies for developing flexible training solutions.
