|Harris Corporation Demonstrates Next Generation Air Transport System Solution During the 51st Annual ATCA Conference|
WASHINGTON, DC, — Harris Corporation this week is offering a glimpse into its System Wide Information Management (SWIM) solution for the Federal Aviation Administration's (FAA) Next Generation Air Transport System (NGATS) during the 51st Annual Air Traffic Control Association (ATCA) Conference and Exposition. The Harris SWIM demonstration will feature the capabilities of a service-oriented architecture that could be used to enhance the National Airspace System (NAS) through network-centric operations. The conference is being held October 29 through November 1 at the Marriott Wardman Park Hotel (Harris booth #415) in Washington, DC.
"Harris has made significant development investment in NAS modernization and is fully dedicated to supporting the FAA's vision for NGATS," said Jeremy Wensinger, group president of Integrated Systems and Services for the Harris Government Communications Systems Division. "Our experience in mission-critical communications solutions for the FAA, the Department of Defense, and other government agencies provides a solid foundation for addressing and implementing the critical elements of NGATS. These elements include instant access to information, current weather status and weather prediction, and proximity information both in the air and on the ground."
By enabling NAS-wide information sharing among users and applications, the SWIM architecture has the capability to provide the right information in the right format to the right user at the right time. Demonstrations in the Harris booth will include initial implementations of network services for mediation, such as transformation, situational awareness, negotiation and publishing; messaging, including synchronous and asynchronous data exchange; and collaboration. Two specific reference applications, surveillance information and weather data, will be demonstrated within the SWIM framework and address both new and legacy applications.
Harris has a long history of developing and integrating system solutions for the FAA and the global air traffic control network. The company is the prime contractor for the FAA Telecommunications Infrastructure program, which will provide improved network security and communications services to more than 4,000 FAA facilities nationwide.
Other FAA programs developed by Harris include the Weather And Radar Processor, a weather system serving the en-route air traffic control environment; OASIS, an integrated weather/flight planning tool for the general aviation pilot community; the Voice Switching and Control System, which provides the critical air-to-ground communications links between en-route aircraft and air traffic controllers throughout the continental United States; and the Alaskan NAS Interfacility Communications System, a satellite-based network that provides critical NAS interfacility communications (voice and data) for the FAA's Alaskan Region.
Harris Government Communications Systems Division conducts advanced research studies, develops prototypes, and produces and supports state-of-the-art, assured communications™ solutions and information systems that solve the mission-critical challenges of its military and government customers, while serving as the technology base for the company's diverse commercial businesses.
