Raytheon, AirMap virtually demo drone monitoring tools on next-generation air traffic control workstation

System offers streamlined access to real-time data, improving drone integration and safety

WASHINGTON, Oct. 21, 2019 — (PRNewswire) —  Raytheon Company (NYSE: RTN) and AirMap, the leading global airspace intelligence platform for drones, have integrated AirMap's unmanned aerial systems (UAS) monitoring capabilities onto a working prototype of Raytheon's next-generation air traffic controller workstation called Multi-platform ATC Re-hosting Solution, or MARS

Raytheon, AirMap virtually demo drone monitoring tools on next-generation air traffic control workstation at 2019 ATCA in Washington, D.C., Oct. 21-23.

With this integration, MARS now offers air traffic controllers streamlined access to UAS monitoring designed to improve the safety of drone integration. The MARS workstation integrates commercial off-the-shelf technologies into a consolidated touchscreen display that provides access to multiple automation applications at one workstation, without changing re-hosted applications.

"When drones fly in controlled airspace, they're sharing the skies with many other types of aircraft," said Matt Gilligan, vice president of Raytheon Intelligence, Information and Services. "Air traffic controllers need real-time airspace awareness and alerts to unusual drone activity; it's a key step on the path toward safe drone integration into the national airspace system."

AirMap's intelligent airspace management tools, such as real-time remote identification, airspace authorization, and dynamic geofencing provide air traffic controllers access to UAS flight data through automated digital technologies.

In the virtual demonstration, the AirMap technology alerts the MARS user of a drone exhibiting unusual or non-conforming flight behavior within the controlled airspace surrounding a major airport.

"Air traffic controllers, as well as UAS operators and manned aircraft pilots, need situational awareness," said Ben Marcus, Chairman and Co-founder of AirMap. "With Raytheon, we're working to optimize how controllers can be armed with information about UAS without burdensome increases in workload."

To experience the new MARS virtual demo in person, stop by the Raytheon booth (#329) at the Air Traffic Control Association's 2019 Annual Conference in Washington, D.C., on Oct. 21-23.
