Raytheon's next generation air traffic management system, AutoTrac III (AT3), is now controlling air traffic at three Indian airports run by Airports Authority of India - Delhi, Mumbai and Chennai - covering three of the four Indian Flight Information Regions. This is an important step in India’s plans to modernize its national airspace to accommodate the anticipated steep rise in the region's air traffic as more and more people choose to fly.
The AT3 system is an advanced, cost-effective solution to the challenges facing the ATM community in the 21st Century - traffic growth outpacing revenue growth and the drive to increase capacity and productivity in a cost conscious environment. The system contains the most advanced surveillance and flight data processing systems available today. Raytheon’s partnership with AAI will provide India with the most modern ATM system in the world.
Now, air traffic controllers receive information in integrated fashion on a Situation Display. This includes flight, surveillance, aeronautical and meteorological data, enabling the controller to make decisions which expedite the flow of air traffic.
