Raytheon to upgrade ATM systems in Kyrgyz Republic

4th October 2011 - 16:00 GMT | by The Shephard News Team


Raytheon Company has been awarded a $24 million contract to modernize air traffic management systems in the Kyrgyz Republic, including the country's main international airport near the capital city, Bishkek.

The competitively procured contract calls for the delivery of a wide area multilateration (WAM)-based air traffic control (ATC) system, ATC radio systems, a new air traffic control tower (ATCT) at Manas International Airport, and related ancillary equipment and systems integration services required for safe and reliable operations. The contracting authority is the US Air Force Electronic Systems Center, which is procuring this contract via the Foreign Military Sales (FMS) program.

"In an effort to expand our global ATM customer base, we will, for the first time, provide the Kyrgyz Republic with improved ATM capabilities and flight capacity," said Mike Prout, vice president for Raytheon Network Centric Systems' Security and Transportation Systems. "Thanks to a continued partnership with the US Air Force and with over 60 years of experience as a proven large scale ATM provider, we are confident that our systems will provide the best value for the US government and the Kyrgyz Republic."

The Raytheon team, which includes Saab Sensis Corporation of Syracuse, N.Y., will establish a safe and effective air management system for en-route air traffic within the Kyrgyz Republic along with aircraft operating at the Manas International Airport. Saab Sensis is a world-recognized leader in WAM technology.

Raytheon is the prime contractor and system integrator. Raytheon will also design and construct a new ATCT at Manas International Airport and supply new communications systems and interfaces to the existing air traffic management infrastructure. Construction and ATCT design services will be supported by Serka Construction, based in Turkey.
