Army air-traffic control deal goes to Raytheon

The Army has awarded Raytheon Co. a $200 million contract to supply tactical air traffic control systems to the Army and the Marine Corps for faster personnel deployments.

The two systems'the AN/TPN-31 Air Traffic Navigation, Integration and Coordination System and the AN/FPN-67 Fixed-Base Precision Approach Radar'are used in operations worldwide, including Iraq. Raytheon will produce, test and deliver up to 30 of the first system and nine of the latter one over five years.

This award follows an earlier contract in which Raytheon delivered 24 air traffic navigation systems and 18 radar systems to the Army.
