Lockheed Martin has supported the FAA for more than 50 years, and we are proud of the collaborative effort in delivering ERAM
to all 20 Air Route Traffic Control Centers in the contiguous US," said Stephanie C.
Butairtrafficcontrollers and pilots said ERAM
is a vast improvement over past systems and that it is needed to fit growing planetrafficinto the airspace safely.
Ken Krieg, under secretary of defense (acquisition, technology and logistics), laid out a plan in April 2006 for "gaming" the ERAM
concept through a set of initial test case systems: the Defense Integrated Military Human Resources System; the General Fund Enterprise Business System; and the Integrated Data Environment/Global Transportation Network Convergence.
technology enables NextGen initiatives, which yield airline efficiencies and support re-routes in response to weather conditions or other airspace constraints.
Raytheon is pleased to perform as a major subcontractor to Lockheed Martin for ERAM
and we are confident that the FAA will be getting a world class team to provide a solution for modernization of the world's most complex en route ATM system," said Steve Teel, vice president of Business Development for Raytheon's Command, Control, Communications and Information Systems.
We are extremely proud of our team's current program achievement, and we remain committed to delivering performance excellence through testing, deployment, and all of the life-cycle phases of ERAM
will redesign and modernize the 40-year Host Computer System, which is the core automation system in the en route environment.
, which is replacing a 40-year-old system, is the computer system used to guide airplanes flying at high altitudes.
Completing the software development phase, which was a 26-month effort, is a vital next-step milestone for ERAM
, the foundation of the FAA air traffic control infrastructure.
will be implemented at all 20 Air Route Traffic Control Centers across the U.
program was awarded last July to a national team led by Lockheed Martin.
For this effort, Boeing will apply internally developed, advanced airspace modeling tools to help ensure that ERAM
achieves its envisaged operational capabilities.
