Lockheed Martin has won a contract with South Korea to install an upgraded version of its SkyLine air traffic management system at the Korea Control Center.
The old system has been in operation since 2001.
Under the contract, Lockheed will partner with the prime contractor, LG CNS, to establish a SkyLine research and development center that will facilitate technology transfer and provide in-country software customization to the Korean customer, the company said in a release.
The company didn't disclose the value of the contract.
Lockheed Martin will also provide training support to LG CNS and Korean Air Traffic Center engineering staff.
“Upgrading SkyLine in Korea offers a new model for technology transfer to our international partners and continues the system’s expansion in the Asia-Pacific region,” said Paul Engola, vice president of transportation solutions for Lockheed Martin’s Information Systems & Global Solutions business.
