“The solution that SRA will deliver to the FAA is derived from a mature commercial off-the-shelf advanced surface movement guidance and control system that is currently operational at large international airports, such as Frankfurt and Munich, which typically rank in the top 20 world airports by number of aircraft movements,” said SRA President and CEO Stan Sloane. “We are committed to supporting the FAA’s mission of reducing the risk of runway incursions in the U.S. by delivering a highly advanced, yet cost-effective solution for airports in the national airspace system.”

Sloane was named by ExecutiveBiz as one of the “Top Ten – New at the Top” Government Contractor Executives in 2008.
