Raytheon's Latest Air Traffic Management Systems Go Into Continuous Operation At Two Of The World's Busiest Airports

PARIS, June 19, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- Raytheon Company's (NYSE: RTN) latest air traffic management automation systems have successfully gone into continuous operation at two of the world's busiest airport hubs: Dallas Fort Worth in the U.S. and Dubai in the United Arab Emirates.

Dallas Fort Worth is the first of the U.S. Federal Aviation Administration's (FAA) high volume hubs to transition to Raytheon's Standard Terminal Automation Replacement System (STARS) automation platform as the FAA modernizes the terminal approach control facilities (TRACONs) in the National Airspace System and installs a common terminal automation system across the FAA and the U.S. Department of Defense.

Raytheon's AutoTrac III automation system has also successfully transitioned to continuous operation in Dubai, providing approach and departure services for Dubai International, Dubai World Central, Al Maktoum International, Sharjah International, and Minhad Air Force Base, as well as air traffic control service to Ras Al Khaimah International. The system is also installed at the Dubai International and Al Maktoum International Control Towers.

"These significant milestones have been achieved through Raytheon's close cooperation and partnership with the FAA and with the Dubai Air Navigation Services (DANS) managed by Serco," said Joseph Paone, director of Raytheon's Air Traffic Systems. "This modernization ensures that the complex airspace in Dallas Fort Worth and Dubai is ready for the improved safety, capacity, efficiency and environmental benefits required to accommodate the forecast increase in global air traffic."

STARS is the foundational platform for the FAA's transformational Next Generation Air Transportation System (NextGen) initiative to create capacity, increase efficiency, reduce congestion and minimize fuel burn and pollutant emissions in the National Airspace. Under the FAA's Terminal Automation Modernization/Replacement (TAMR) program, Raytheon is modernizing FAA and U.S. Department of Defense air traffic control facilities, including the largest. More than 150 STARS systems are already in operation.
