Lockheed Martin SkyLine™ System Operational As Kazakhstan's National Air Traffic Management System





ROCKVILLE, Md., March 11, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- Lockheed Martin's (NYSE: LMT) SkyLine™ system now supports air traffic management throughout the Republic of Kazakhstan. SkyLine enables Kazakhstan to manage its airspace on a single hardware and software platform, enhancing airspace safety and efficiency.

Kazakhstan's air navigation service provider, Kazaeronavigatsia, uses SkyLine at three area control centers - Astana, Aktobe and Almaty - and 15 control towers in remote locations. The Almaty site was the last to transition to SkyLine on Feb. 1, and the system has operated successfully at all sites.

"The implementation of a national system using SkyLine is a significant accomplishment for Kazaeronavigatsia," said Kazaeronavigatsia's Director General Sergey Kulnazarov. "Since 2004, Lockheed Martin has partnered with Kazaeronavigatsia to help us realize our vision of a single national air traffic management system in Kazakhstan."

SkyLine's advanced surveillance and flight data processing capabilities enable it to fulfill multiple air traffic management roles for aircraft at different altitudes and within different areas of control. Depending on customer requirements, the platform can function as an en-route, approach or tower control system – supporting aircraft at all stages of their flight plan.

"Lockheed Martin partnered with Kazaeronavigatsia to deliver an adaptable and cost-effective ATM system that enhances the safety and efficiency of Kazakhstan's airspace," said Sandy Samuel, vice president of transportation solutions for Lockheed Martin's Information Systems & Global Solutions business. "SkyLine's flexibility enabled Lockheed Martin to tailor the system and enhance Kazakhstan's air traffic management capabilities."

Lockheed Martin has more than 50 years of air traffic management experience. Its cost-effective and comprehensive air traffic management solutions enhance safety, reduce flight delays, save fuel and reduce environmental impacts in approximately 60 percent of the world's airspace.
