FAA awards update of pilot medical certification system

The Federal Aviation Administration awarded Integic Corp. of Chantilly, Va., an additional contract through the General Services Administration to modernize the Civil Aerospace Medical Institute, part of the airman certification program.

Integic had already developed the agency's Document Imaging Workflow System, which provides the aerospace institute with an automated and secure system for electronically submitting, managing and processing medical certification applications. These are required of all pilots who fly in U.S. airspace and all air traffic controllers cleared to direct air traffic.

The new agreement, worth $12 million, covers additional integration with the document imaging system and several supporting modules, which collectively represent a comprehensive and secure data store associated with aerospace medicine, the company said today.

FAA is extending the functionality of the system to all nine of its regions. And Integic plans to enhance the system using its ePower platform to integrate the participation of aviation medical examiners along with their caseloads, to monitor and manage the healthcare histories of a broader population of pilots and to conduct real-time data mining for unique healthcare concerns among pilots.
