Era Systems Corp. has completed installation of its surface ADS-B & mlat solution (MSS) at the Oslo Airport, Norway’s gateway airport.
FAIRFAX, Va., January 14, 2009 — SRA International, Inc. (NYSE: SRX), a leading provider of technology and strategic consulting services and solutions to government organizations and commercial clients, announced that its subsidiary, Era Systems Corporation, has completed installation of its surface ADS-B and multilateration solution (MSS) at the Oslo Airport, Norway’s gateway airport. The system is now fully operational and feeding into the advanced-surface movement guidance and control system (ASMGCS) developed by HITT, the prime on the contract, to provide air traffic controllers with complete situational awareness.
Airport officials at Oslo selected Era’s MSS ADS-B and multilateration surveillance solution and Era’s Squid vehicle tracking devices to support their notable growth, high safety record and recognized on-time performance. These systems add to Oslo’s already extensive surface tracking and aircraft routing system, which includes primary X-band radar and a taxiway guidance lighting system.
Era’s MSS provides higher accuracy, greater update rates, better coverage and improved reliability when compared to traditional radar – at a much lower initial cost and with lower annual maintenance costs.
“Through a combination of rigorous program management and close partner and customer cooperation, Era has successfully deployed this system a mere 16 months after contract award,” said Russell Hulstrom, vice president of Era’s Air Traffic Management Business. “Era systems are the most widely selected and operationally proven ADS-B and multilateration systems in the world, and we have the unique experience and capabilities that can deliver systems in a timely and efficient manner.”
Acquired by SRA in July 2008, Era Systems Corporation provides advanced surveillance technologies for the air traffic management, airport operations, military and security markets.
