Sacramento and Oakland, California, February 15, 2016 – In preparation for the 50th National Football League (NFL) Super Bowl at Levi’s Stadium in Santa Clara, California, the staff at Indev who support the Federal Aviation Administration’s (FAA’s) Northern California Terminal Radar Approach Control and Oakland Tower Simulator were hard at work developing operational scenarios to prepare Air Traffic Controllers for the deluge of airplanes that arrived from all over the country. The Indev team worked closely with FAA training staff to build operational training scenarios for Air Traffic Controllers in the Towers and TRACON’s during this timeframe to prepare for the significant increase in air traffic and to enhance the overall safety of operations at all surrounding airports.
The Controller Training Contract (CTC) includes training and program support services for the FAA’s 14,000 Air Traffic Controllers. In partnership with Science Applications International Corporation (SAIC), Indev provides air traffic control and simulation/laboratory training and innovation support to the FAA’s Western Service Area EnRoute, Terminal, and Control Tower Air Traffic Facilities in the state of California, Colorado, and Utah. Our 100+ experienced personnel include Senior Air Traffic Controllers, Instructors, Remote Pilot Operators, and Lab Coordinators.
We are very pleased to assist the FAA on such critical work to help support their mission and ensure our skies remain safe for the flying public.

We are honored and excited to build on our longstanding partnership with both the FAA and SAIC Inc.
