Raytheon Pens $177 Million FAA Modification

Raytheon (NYSE: RTN) won a $177 million contract modification from the FAA to continue deployment of the Standard Terminal Automation Replacement System as part of the FAA’s efforts to modernize terminal automation.

STARS is an upgrade over the “capacity-constrained” terminal area air traffic control facilities within the National Airspace System.

“With more than 100 STARS systems delivered, it further confirms STARS is the best choice for the future of terminal air traffic modernization and provides a NextGen-ready platform, ” said Andy Zogg, Raytheon Network Centric Systems vice president of Command and Control Systems. “We look forward to continuing our successful partnership with the FAA, National Air Traffic Controllers Association and Professional Airways Systems Specialists as we proceed with the deployment plan.”
