Raytheon’s next-generation air traffic management system AutoTrac III, installed at Al Maktoum International Airport in Dubai, is on track to be operational by next year, according to a company release.
The AT3 system will manage air traffic in Dubai’s terminal airspace and will provide approach control services for Al Maktoum International, Dubai International Airport, Sharjah International and Al Minhad Airbase. The system will also support tower operations at the Dubai International and Al Maktoum International Airports.
“Raytheon’s next generation ATM automation system provides a high-performance, cost-effective solution for the world’s rapidly growing air traffic demands,” said Stephen DuMont, Raytheon’s director of international air traffic management.
“The system contains some of the most advanced surveillance and flight data processing systems available today, and we are extremely pleased that our partnership with Dubai Aviation City Corporation Engineering Projects and Dubai Air Navigation Services will give Dubai one of the world’s most modern ATM systems to safely and efficiently meet its ambitious aviation growth plans,” he added.
