Raytheon Gets The Nod For More STARS Work

Company Will Build 25 More Systems For Civilian And Military Use

The FAA has awarded Raytheon Company a $57 million contract option for continued deployment of the Standard Terminal Automation Replacement System (STARS), which is now in service with the FAA and the Department of Defense (DoD). Contract options include production and deployment of 14 systems for the FAA and nine for the DoD, as well as logistics and support activities. This option completes Phase 1A of the STARS deployment plan.

"More than 100 STARS systems delivered and 52 controlling live air traffic further confirm that STARS is the right choice for FAA and DoD terminal air traffic control missions," said Andy Zogg, vice president of Raytheon Airspace Management and Homeland Security. "We look forward to continuing our successful partnership with the FAA, National Air Traffic Controllers Association and Professional Airways Systems Specialists as we proceed down the STARS deployment waterfall."

STARS is a joint procurement for the FAA and DoD. Thirty-one FAA and 21 DoD sites are currently controlling air traffic with STARS. These sites are supported with a national, joint FAA/DoD infrastructure of training, maintenance, testing and logistics.

The STARS System is a highly reliable, open architecture air traffic automation system that provides new high resolution color displays, new computer processing and communication equipment. System features include a six-level display of weather conditions, multi-radar tracking capability in addition to rapid, easy incorporation of new hardware and software. The STARS terminal controller workstations provide position-by-position, in-place replacement of aging existing system displays.
