Raytheon-led team wins NASA award for simulation research

  • 20-Jul-2009 04:35 EDT
NASA awarded a $29.1 million contract to a team led by Raytheon Co. to develop enhancements to the system-wide modeling and simulation capability in the Airspace Concepts Evaluation System (ACES). The plug-and-play models will help NASA, the FAA, and other researchers better understand the tools and concepts needed to support the impacts of NextGen on the National Airspace System. ACES is NASA's real-time computer simulation tool that analyzes local, regional, and nationwide factors that contribute to the dynamics of aircraft operations from gate departures and flight paths to landings and gate arrivals. The Raytheon team includes Intelligent Automation Inc., Sensis Corp., Mosaic ATM, Aerospace Computing Inc., and PDA Associates.
