GREENWICH, Conn., Aug. 2 /PRNewswire/ -- Megadata Corporation announced today that Vaughn and Technology has signed an agreement for PASSUR Portal, PASSUR inSight and PASSUR Pulse to use in teaching airport operations and air traffic courses.
"We have long desired a more realistic and hands-on approach to teaching our students about airport operations," said Dr. John Fitzpatrick, President of the College. "PASSUR now allows us to receive real-world data about airport operations and enhance the academic experience. This provides our students with rich data, analytics and visual displays, allowing us to create applied scenarios that go beyond the textbook."
"Vaughn and Technology is a pacesetter in aviation academia. We are pleased to offer the students something they have never seen before to enhance the learning experience by analyzing real data - assisting Vaughn in its mission of preparing the next generation of leaders in aviation," said Jim Barry, Megadata President and CEO.
PASSUR Portal is at the heart of the PASSUR Collaborative Decision Making approach, providing an instant, live snapshot of vital operational information on a "web dashboard" of multiple information sets derived from the one-of-a- kind PASSUR database, and tools for instant information sharing and communication among all users. Portal is the main access point for all other PASSUR web services.
PASSUR Pulse gives aviation organizations access to the most complete, accurate and timely activity reports based on the PASSUR database of flight information, including detailed owner/operator information.
PASSUR inSight is the only web-based flight following program that combines national en route flight tracking with precision, terminal-area tracking from the PASSUR network of radar, along with a next-generation graphics engine for real-motion tracking and aircraft movement, and the renowned PASSUR ETA.
