Raytheon won a $82 million contract with the Indian Space Research Organization (ISRO). The contract funds a massive Indian air navigation system modernization project. Ground stations for the new Geosynchronous Augmented Navigation System (GAGAN) will be built by Raytheon. GAGAN will use GPS technology and give India satellite-navigation equipment to be used all over India as well as South and East Asian areas.

“GAGAN will be the world’s most advanced air navigation system and further reinforces India’s leadership in the forefront of air navigation. GAGAN will greatly improve safety, reduce congestion and enhance communications to meet India’s growing air traffic management needs, “according to Andy Zogg, Raytheon Network Centric Systems vice president of Command and Control Systems.
