FAIRFAX, Va., Nov. 5 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ -- Era Systems Corporation, a subsidiary of SRA International, Inc. (NYSE: SRX), today announced that the Connecticut Department of Transportation (ConnDOT) has selected Era to install its new noise and flight track monitoring solution. The solution will feature Era's AirScene®.com NOMS (Noise and Operations Monitoring System), Larson Davis semi-permanent 831 noise monitoring terminals and Passur Aerospace flight tracking software.
The noise and flight-tracking terminals will be installed at Bradley International Airport in Windsor Locks, Conn. - the state's largest airport and the second-busiest in New England. This advanced technology will allow the airport to handle noise complaints by correlating aircraft identification data with flight tracks to determine what flight caused a community complaint.
"ConnDOT's competitive award to Era strengthens our reputation as the leading NOMS provider in North America," said Era Vice President Bill Colligan. "The hosted architecture of the AirScene.com product allows airports like Bradley, with limited noise management capabilities, to rapidly and cost-effectively deploy a fully functional NOMS solution with minimal airport staff involvement."
In addition, ConnDOT selected Era's AirScene.com Contours, an optional feature of AirScene.com NOMS. AirScene.com Contours is a powerful integrated noise contouring application and patented virtual noise monitor tool (VNM). Contours is compatible with the latest version of the FAA's integrated noise model (INM) and also will be compatible with the aviation environmental design tool (AEDT), the FAA's next generation modeling tool that integrates both noise and air quality.
Era Systems Corporation provides next-generation air traffic management tools that address core challenges like safety, efficiency, profitability and functionality. Its innovative use of proven next-generation technologies, like multilateration and ADS-B, help air navigation service providers (ANSPs) and airport operators ease capacity constraints; improve airspace and ground space efficiencies; and reduce costs.
SRA does not announce sales amounts for individual Era contracts; Era contracts for their airport operations business typically range in value of $500,000 to $2 million.
