Raytheon gets national airspace contract

Raytheon Co. is developing an advanced situational awareness system for the national airspace, the company announced.

The Transportation Department’s Volpe National Transportation Systems Center awarded the contract to Raytheon to develop the NextGen Terminal Data Distribution System. The center supports the Federal Aviation Administration. Financial terms of the contract were not disclosed.

Raytheon Network Centric Systems will develop the new data distribution system to coordinate information sharing for disparate tracking systems.
