ITT Exelis announced Wednesday it is bringing real-time, integrated next generation flight-tracking data to Embry-Riddle Aeronautical University.
The Herndon, Va.-based firm said it has entered a licensing agreement with Embry-Riddle for its Symphony OpsVue application.
The application monitors flight safety and efficiency through real-time air traffic control and surveillance.
Exelis’ flight tracking program will also be used to train individuals how to fly unmanned aircraft systems and traffic pattern and procedure studies.
The Federal Aviation Administration also recently selected Exelis as a prime contractor to design and develop 10 Required Navigation Performance approach procedures for five airports.
