Raytheon Company is to supply turnkey air traffic management systems for airports in Iraq. The deal is initially worth US$10.5 million, with options for further equipment worth up to $38.9 million. The project will restore full, all weather air traffic control capability to Iraq’s major airports. Raytheon will supply state-of-the-art navigation and landing aids, airfield lighting and airport meteorological equipment, its digital terminal area surveillance radars and Raytheon AutoTrac II air traffic management systems. "A fully restored and operable air traffic system is key to rebuilding Iraq's infrastructure and to reopening trade and commerce," says Andrew Goldman, vice president of Raytheon's International Air Traffic Management Systems. "Raytheon is prepared to provide ATM systems rapidly to establish a highly reliable and easily expandable air traffic control system."
