[Avionics Today March 28, 2014] Lockheed Martin
is upgrading South Korea's Air Traffic Management (ATM) system with an updated version of its SkyLine system, first deployed in Korea in 2001.
The upgrade will be completed in partnership with the prime contractor for the project, LG CNS. Both Lockheed and LG CNS will establish a SkyLine research and development center in Seoul, Korea which will facilitate technology transfer and provide in-country software customization.
"Upgrading SkyLine in Korea offers a new model for technology transfer to our international partners and continues the system’s expansion in the Asia-Pacific region,” said Paul Engola, vice president of transportation solutions for Lockheed Martin
’s Information Systems & Global Solutions business.
The aerospace and defense manufacturer claims to provide ATM software for more than 60 percent of the world's current air traffic.
