Sunhillo Corp., of West Berlin, N.J., and The Richard Stockton College of New Jersey, in Pomona, have been approved as the first members of the Next Generation Aviation Research & Technology Park (ARTP), under construction on the campus of FAA’s William J. Hughes Technical Center and Atlantic City International Airport.
Federal, state and local officials broke ground Oct. 19, 2009, on the research park, which is dedicated to advancing NextGen technologies. Companies working on FAA programs will be able to perform research, development, testing, integration and verification of new technologies.
The Stockton College Physics Program is developing an Aviation Science track with Hi-Tec Systems, of Egg Harbor Township, N.J., and plans to offer the program at the Aviation Park. Sunhillo Corp., provides data communications products and is a subcontractor to ITT Corp. for the Automatic Dependent Surveillance-Broadcast (ADS-B) ground infrastructure deployment, providing Service Delivery Points to interface air-traffic control facilities.
"With our first members, ARTP is now poised to contribute to the national mandate of improving the air-traffic control system," said Ron Esposito, ARTP executive director.
