FAIRFAX, Va. , Jan. 29 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ -- Era Systems Corporation, a subsidiary of SRA International, Inc. (NYSE: SRX), has been awarded a contract by the General Directorate of State Airports Authority (DHMI) to deploy its surface multilateration systems at three airports in Turkey . The airports include Ataturk International Airport in Istanbul , one of the 40 busiest airports worldwide, Antalya Airport, one of the fastest growing airports worldwide, and Esenboga International Airport in Ankara , Turkey's fourth busiest.
