Fly­ing high on new sys­tem

Townsville Bulletin - - Investor -

MOV­ING to the next gen­er­a­tion of air traf­fic man­age­ment sys­tems in the US will save fuel, ease de­lays and make trip times shorter, the com­pany rolling out the sys­tem says. In 2007, global in­for­ma­tion tech­nol­ogy ITT won a $ US1.8 bil­lion con­tract to build a new air traf­fic con­trol sys­tem. The new sys­tem was de­signed to re­place the radar sys­tem for mon­i­tor­ing air­craft in the air, as well as guid­ing and di­rect­ing them. The roll­out is con­tin­u­ing, and ITT last year won an­other con­tract from the US Fed­eral Avi­a­tion Au­thor­ity to lead the def­i­ni­tion and im­ple­men­ta­tion team.
