Honeywell last month announced it has signed a collaborative agreement with Lockheed Martin Air Traffic Management in Rockville, Md., to jointly compete for an FAA contract for local-area augmentation system (LAAS) hardware and support. The FAA is expected this month to award a contract for the initial production and installation of LAAS ground stations at six airports, with an option for 15 to 40 more per year over the next five years. Raytheon, in the midst of a multi-billion-dollar ATC upgrade program, is also competing for the LAAS contract. Honeywell has demonstrated LAAS in live trials at airports in Memphis, Chicago and Minneapolis.
