ITT Corp. was been selected by the Metropolitan Washington Airports Authority (MWAA) to provide its flight operations data feed for noise monitoring and flight tracking systems in the Washington, D.C., area at Dulles International and Reagan National airports.

ITT said the flight tracking data feed will improve noise event correlation and operational assignment for both airports and their surrounding communities. ITT is contracted to provide the data feed to MWAA for one year with the option to renew for two additional years. The information is derived from ITT's Automatic Dependent Surveillance–Broadcast (ADS-B) network.

“The data will be integrated into both Dulles and Reagan airports’ Noise Operations Monitoring Systems (NOMS), which enable the proactive monitoring and management of aircraft noise and environmental effects on neighboring communities,” said John Kefaliotis, vice president of next generation air transportation systems for ITT. “NOMS information is critical for busy airports as growth and revenue opportunities are often prevented or delayed due to local community concerns about noise generated by aircraft.”

ITT’s flight operations data feed provides operational information that can be used to optimize the business operations of customers such as airlines and airport operators, ITT said.
