[Avionics Today 03-02-2015] The Port of Seattle has selected Exelis to provide its Noise Monitoring and Flight Tracking System (NMFTS) to Seattle-Tacoma International Airport (Sea-Tac) in Washington. The system will provide noise event and flight track information to the airport and surrounding community.

NMFTS will consist of aircraft surveillance software solutions provided by Exelis, integrated with Model 831-based noise monitors from sound level meter designer and manufacturer Larson Davis.

“As the United States’ fastest-growing large hub airport, having accurate and timely noise event and flight track information is an essential asset for our noise monitoring and community relations program,” said Perry Cooper, a spokesperson for Sea-Tac Airport.
