Thales said Thursday it will install its Surface Traffic Enhancement and Automation Support (STREAMS) system at the Manchester Boston Regional Airport (MHT), as part of the FAA's Low-Cost Ground Surveillance (LCGS) program. FAA chose Thales in January as the first of several companies that will deliver, install and test ground surveillance systems at U.S. airports selected by FAA. Thales’s STREAMS Advanced-Surface Movement Guidance and Control System (A-SMGCS) system is designed to maintain the safe and expeditious movement of aircraft and vehicles on airport surface. The system provides air traffic controllers with a basic system to enhance situational awareness of aircraft and vehicles on runways which can be augmented in the future with additional sensors or processing, Thales said.
