Raytheon-Built Navigation Payload Integrated Into FAA's GEO 5 Wide Area Augmentation System - top government contractors - best government contracting eventRaytheon has integrated a navigation payload into the Federal Aviation Administration‘s Wide Area Augmentation System that works to support global positioning system functions.

Geosynchronous Earth Orbiting 5‘s payload is designed to address GPS satellite signal ionospheric disturbances, timing issues and minor orbit adjustments, the company said Thursday.

The technology is part of the Raytheon-managed GEO 5 system comprising another payload aboard Eutelsat‘s GEO satellite, two COMSAT ground-based facilities and SED Systems equipment.

WAAS has supported GPS satellite service since 2003 to help all types of aircraft safely navigate throughout flights across the U.S., Alaska and some parts of Canada and Mexico.

Raytheon was awarded a contract in 2015 to build the WAAS payload technology.
