[Avionics Today 09-23-2014] Lockheed Martin will implement its route analysis tool at the Orlando International Airport (MCO) in Florida. The technology, B Route Development, will allow the Greater Orlando Aviation Authority (GOAA) to calculate and analyze route scenarios in less than two hours, a task that would normally take as long as two days, according to Lockheed Martin. GOAA can present these routes to airlines using an iPad application that can then re-calculate and amend routes as needed.
B Route Development allows airports to develop and build individual route cases for airlines using commercial aviation data as well as specific airport statistics and survey information that can be used for improved analysis, collaboration and interactive presentation.
GOAA is the first client for B Route Development in the United States and follows Lockheed Martin's acquisition of BEONTRA earlier this year.
