Pamela Drew, president of ITT Exelis‘ information systems business, joins the company as it pursues growth in aviation and technology services such as air traffic management.

In an interview with the Washington Post, Drew said global en route air traffic control and regional work are among the needs of aviation customers worldwide.

She joined Exelis in January and leads an area focused on developing systems and radio communications (click here for GovCon Wire‘s coverage of her appointment).

Drew told the Post the aviation market is growing and Exelis’ focus on that market can help it navigate uncertainties of the U.S. defense budget.

She plans to visit several Exelis locations in places such as Albuquerque, N.M., Colorado Springs, Colo. and Rome, N.Y., Marjorie Censer writes.

Exelis has completed its $16.8 million purchase of Australia-based communications software maker C4i to continue its aviation market strategy (click here for GovCon Wire’s coverage of that transaction).
