Raytheon Launches AutoTrac III, a Single Global Solution for All ATM Domains

ATC MAASTRICHT, The Netherlands, Feb. 14, 2006 /PRNewswire/ -- Raytheon Company has released AutoTrac III, the next evolutionary step in Air Traffic Management (ATM) technology.

The new release, built solely by Raytheon, builds on the successes of AutoTrac 1 and 2 and features a new generation of flight data and surveillance data processing systems. AutoTrac III also bridges the old and the new by allowing users to integrate the new release with either their legacy or next- generation products.

This existing system, with its modern open architecture design and high performance characteristics, is fully adaptable and scaleable to any ATM environment, ranging from a simple tower automation application to a fully integrated national multi-center system.

The system provides a low-cost and low-risk solution for the complete spectrum of ATM domain automation needs worldwide.

AutoTrac III incorporates in a single system a unique set of features such as multi-sensor tracking, safety nets, flight data and clearance processing, and an advanced flexible 'stripless' human machine interface that customers have already begun incorporating into their strategic technology planning. These advances will provide higher levels of safety, greater capacity and improved efficiency for years to come -- seamlessly integrated within a single system.

"Raytheon has provided more than 350 automated ATM systems to customers around the world -- more than any other provider -- and more all solid-state ATM surveillance radars than all other manufacturers combined," said Charlie Keegan, Raytheon director of Strategic Development. "Raytheon's next generation system, AutoTrac III, now provides a single solution for all domains and a platform on which customers can build into the future."

Raytheon Company (NYSE: RTN), with 2005 sales of $21.9 billion, is an industry leader in defense and government electronics, space, information technology, technical services, and business and special mission aircraft. With headquarters in Waltham, Mass., Raytheon employs 80,000 people worldwide.
