Raytheon Unveils its Next Generation Air Traffic Automation System at Civil/Military Air Traffic Management Conference (CMAC 05) in Prague, Czech Republic

MARLBORO, Mass., May 25, 2005 /PRNewswire/ -- Raytheon Company is unveiling its Next Generation Air Traffic Automation System at the Civil/Military Air Traffic Management Conference in Prague, Czech Republic, May 23 - 26, 2005. The system, with its modern open architecture design and high performance characteristics, is fully adaptable and scalable to any ATM (air traffic management) domain -- from a single tower automation application to a fully integrated civil/military multi-center, trans-national airspace system.

"Raytheon's Next Generation ATM Automation System, which is available today, provides a cost-effective, low-risk solution for the complete spectrum of ATM domains. The system contains the most advanced surveillance and flight data processing systems available today," said Andy Zogg, Raytheon's vice president for Airspace Management and Homeland Security. "We have chosen to preview it at the Prague conference in order to receive comments and suggestions from our current and future customers."

The Next Generation ATM Automation system takes the "best of the best" from Raytheon's unequaled fifty-year heritage in the design, development, implementation and support of advanced air traffic management systems. The system provides the features, functions and performance that air navigation service providers require to successfully complete their mission. These features include multi-sensor tracking, safety nets, integrated automatic dependent surveillance and controller-pilot data link communications, flight data and clearance processing, medium-term conflict detection, and an advanced flexible "strip-less" human machine interface.

At the heart of Raytheon's Next Generation ATM system are its highly accurate 4-D trajectories that support the system's advanced capabilities. The trajectories that are supported include filed, tactical, and planning. The system's component-based, object-oriented architecture incorporates Raytheon's advanced interface technology, greatly enhancing interoperability with other systems. This architecture will support legacy functions and future components. Development of the next generation system included a formal safety analysis and is compliant with the latest standards (CMM, CMMI and ISO 9001).

Raytheon provides integrated communication, navigation, surveillance and air traffic management solutions for both civil and military air traffic service providers in more than 45 countries. Raytheon focuses on providing customers with highly reliable sensor and information processing systems with state-of-the-art technology, experienced engineering design and testing, and unparalleled support that provide mission critical air traffic management operations worldwide. With more than fifty years of experience in the air traffic management domain, Raytheon is leading the way toward enhancing safety, capacity and efficiency to accommodate the projected growth of air traffic in the global skies.
