Raytheon to Continue FAA System Support Under $223M Award; Denis Donohue Quoted

Raytheon Technologies (NYSE: RTX) will continue to help the Federal Aviation Administration operate, maintain and update digital air traffic control systems under a five-year, $223 million contract.

The company said June 30 it will also update applications for the FAA’s Standard Terminal Automation Replacement System being used by ATC tower personnel to manage terminal airspace and disseminate weather or conflict alerts.

Denis Donohue, vice president of communications and airspace management systems at Raytheon’s intelligence and space business, said the RI&S group will support more than 700 STARS systems worldwide for both the FAA and the Department of Defense.

“This is key to advancing the FAA’s NextGen modernization initiative to help keep our skies and the public safe,” Donohue added.

As of January 2020, the partnership deployed the system at 11 of the largest terminal radar approach control facilities covering four-fifths of U.S. air traffic.
