Raytheon Obtains Final Contract for STARS Platform Implementation
Posted: 2016 Feb 06
 
Raytheon has received a $135 million contract from the U.S. Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) for implementation of the final phase of the Standard Terminal Automation System, known as STARS. This will involve the upgrade air traffic control (ATC) systems at 22 airports, which will complete the NextGen terminal automation modernization of every major FAA National Air Space facility by December 2019.
 
"Raytheon and the FAA are together providing a safety-critical platform across the U.S.," said Michael Espinola, managing director, Raytheon Air Traffic Systems. "This platform has the processing capacity to allow greatly improved efficiency for the controllers, airlines and flying public."
 
A standard system used by both the FAA and the Department of Defense, STARS delivers a substantial lifecycle costs reduction by replacing several generations and versions of existing terminal automation systems. STARS provides terminal automation with a single operational baseline.
