Raytheon, AirMap partner to demo drone-monitoring tools on air traffic control workstation

Raytheon Company (NYSE: RTN) and AirMap have announced they 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, the company said.

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.

AirMap, the leading global airspace intelligence platform for drones, offers intelligent airspace management tools, such as real-time remote identification, airspace authorization, and dynamic geofencing that provide air traffic controllers with 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.

Raytheon Company is a technology and innovation leader specializing in defense, civil government and cybersecurity solutions.

AirMap is the world´s leading airspace intelligence platform for the drone economy. Industry developers, drone operators, and airspace managers rely on AirMap´s airspace intelligence and services to fly safely and communicate in low-altitude airspace.
