Did you know that NASA operates an ATM simulator at their Langley Research Center? Well, turns out they do — it’s called ATOS, and Sensis just got a contact to provide integration of weather data into that system. (Press release here.)
A sidenote: while looking into ATOS, we found an interesting NASA factsheet summarizing the agency’s interest in helping to develop 4D trajectory-based flight operations.
It’s been a good month so far for Sensis. The East Syracuse (NY)-based tech integrator just landed an FAA contract to install runway status lights at 22 U.S. airports (press releases here and here). The initial job is priced at $131 million; two one-year options could extend that amount to $215 million. Last week, Sensis announced a deal to install a surface surveillance system in Perth, Australia (our post here).
Large tech integrator Sensis reports that it has closed a deal to install a comprehensive surface movement control and guidance system at Perth Airport (press release). The firm says it’s the fourth such package it has sold to Australian airport operators, following Brisbane, Melbourne, and Sydney.
