FAA prepares to award ocean monitoring pact

The Federal Aviation Administration and Lockheed Martin Corp. are putting the final touches on a deal to replace air traffic management systems at three control centers.

After final negotiations are complete, the agency this month plans to award Lockheed Martin the Advanced Technologies and Oceanic Procedures contract, an FAA spokeswoman said.

Lockheed Martin will replace systems that monitor oceanic flights. The agency's centers in Anchorage, Alaska; New York; and Oakland, Calif., handle air traffic for the Pacific and Atlantic oceans. Oceanic flight control differs from domestic control because there is no radar tracking and no direct radio communication.
