D-RAPCON is Raytheon’s “air traffic control system in a box” and has the capability to bring instant air traffic control to the battlefield or a disaster site. The D-RAPCON system consists of primary and secondary ATC radars integrated with a quick set-up deployable radar antenna, self-contained deployable ATC operations center, ATC voice (VHF/UHF) communications system and secure networked data communications.
"Our deployable system will support safe and efficient airspace operations in areas where traffic infrastructure is compromised or non-existent," said Joseph Paone, director of Air Traffic Management at Raytheon's Integrated Defense Systems business. "Transportable air traffic control systems are necessary to provide support and resources even in remote areas."
