ATSEP Day is an annual event celebrating the unseen heroes of air traffic control, Air Traffic Safety Electronics Personnel (ATSEP), around the world. Deerns will host an event on 10 November at its office in Kuwait to acknowledge these young engineers who are training in anticipation of the opening of Kuwait International Airport's impressive new Terminal 2.
Says Edward Fullerton, Training Manager, MET & ATM – CNS Projects, Kuwait, “Air traffic engineers are the ‘invisible’ driving force behind air traffic control. We have 57 students with varying levels of education and experience receiving training in all aspects of the Air Traffic Safety Electronics (ATSE) installation, both theoretical and practical. Once the new facilities become operational, they will be the ones responsible for the management and maintenance of the air traffic control equipment and systems.”
The new terminal will set new standards of quality and passenger experience. Deerns’ responsibility includes the airport specific systems in and around the terminal, as well as critical client support on terms of the ATSEP training. The event on 10 November will include a reception for engineers and trainees, a mini-graduation for those who have completed the Communications module of their training, and a breakfast banquet
