[Avionics Today 11-25-2014] Detroit Metropolitan Wayne County Airport (DTW) has selected Exelis to deploy a comprehensive package of airport situational awareness, decision-support and operations management solutions. Exelis will deliver its suite of integrated applications to DTW, which enables Air Navigation Service Providers (ANSP), airports and airlines to proactively manage operations.

The company will provide Vehicle Movement Area Transponders (VMAT) for airport ground vehicle surveillance, and Symphony MobileVue for displaying aircraft and ground vehicle tracking data on portable devices such as smartphones and tablets.
