Raytheon Increases Air Traffic Efficiencies at Four Major U.S. Airports

Oct. 16, 2008

WASHINGTON , Oct. 16, 2008 /PRNewswire/ -- Raytheon Company (NYSE: RTN) and Lockheed Martin (NYSE: LMT) have completed air traffic system upgrades at Terminal Radar Approach Control facilities and associated air traffic control towers at four major airports across the country: Chicago O'Hare International, Denver International, Lambert-St. Louis International and Minneapolis-St. Paul International.

Raytheon is the prime contractor for the Federal Aviation Administration Terminal Area Modernization Replacement program. The Raytheon-Lockheed Martin team developed and installed new automated radar processing and display systems as part of the TAMR system.

TAMR system upgrades addressed hardware obsolescence and capacity issues and provided an enhanced computer-human interface within the National Airspace System for air traffic controllers. As a result, significant efficiencies are anticipated for the management of aircraft separation and sequencing; traffic alerts and weather advisories; and radar vectoring for aircraft arrivals and departures. Additionally, the new display and processor technologies provide for future terminal enhancements such as automatic dependent surveillance-broadcast, or ADS-B.

Raytheon Company, with 2007 sales of $21.3 billion, is a technology leader specializing in defense, homeland security and other government markets throughout the world. With a history of innovation spanning 86 years, Raytheon provides state-of-the-art electronics, mission systems integration and other capabilities in the areas of sensing; effects; and command, control, communications and intelligence systems, as well as a broad range of mission support services. With headquarters in Waltham, Mass. , Raytheon employs 72,000 people worldwide.
