Tetra Tech acquires aviation software maker Bridgenet

Tetra Tech has acquired aviation technology product and service provider Bridgenet International in a push to further add new software offerings for federal and commercial customers.

Terms of the transaction were undisclosed. Newport Beach, California-based Bridgenet makes a web-based three-dimensional application called Volans to create, evaluate and display flight operations, Tetra Tech said Jan. 25.

Volans works to help engineers and aviation officials simulate and display possible acoustic and environmental impacts around airports in an effort to further enable performance-based navigation for airplanes in flight. The software also shows runway and airfield configurations.

Airports in the U.S., Canada, Australia, France and the U.K. all use the software.
