Era Selected by City of Phoenix for Environmental Monitoring System

FAIRFAX, Va. , Feb. 2 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ -- Era Systems Corporation, a subsidiary of SRA International, Inc. (NYSE: SRX), today announced it has been awarded a contract by the City of Phoenix to upgrade its noise and flight track monitoring solution at Phoenix Sky Harbor International Airport.

The solution will feature Era's NOMS (Noise and Operations Management System) and Bruel & Kjaer's 3639E noise monitors. NOMS allows the airport to correlate aircraft identification data with flight tracks to determine specific aircraft noise levels. The system will be used in the areas surrounding Phoenix Sky Harbor International Airport, one of the top ten busiest airports in the U.S. NOMS is an advanced, professionally hosted integrated applications suite for managing the environmental impact of airport operations. Airports use NOMS to measure and monitor noise to validate noise abatement procedures and to effectively respond to community noise concerns.

In addition, the City of Phoenix selected Era's Contours, an optional feature of NOMS. Contours is the industry's most powerful integrated noise contouring application and is compatible with the latest version of the FAA's current integrated noise model (INM). Contours 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. Contours can be used to produce individual and multiple airport contours.

"Phoenix's competitive award to Era strengthens our reputation as the most widely selected and deployed NOMS supplier in the U.S.," said Bill Colligan , SRA's vice president and general manager, Airport Operations Solutions. "Because of's advanced technology, the City of Phoenix will be able to effectively monitor noise at multiple airports, ranging from general aviation facilities to large commercial hubs."

Acquired by SRA in July 2008 , Era Systems Corporation provides advanced surveillance technologies for the air traffic management, airport operations, military and security markets. For more information about Era, visit
