ROCKVILLE, Md., 14 March 2013. Officials sought to enhance airspace safety and efficiency by managing the airspace throughout the Republic of Kazakhstan on a single hardware and software platform. They found their solution: Lockheed Martin's (NYSE:LMT) SkyLine system.
Kazaeronavigatsia, Kazakhstan's air navigation service provider (ANSP), uses SkyLine at three area control centers (in Astana, Aktobe, and Almaty) and 15 control towers in remote locations.
"The implementation of a national system using SkyLine is a significant accomplishment for Kazaeronavigatsia," says Kazaeronavigatsia's Director General Sergey Kulnazarov. "Since 2004, Lockheed Martin has partnered with Kazaeronavigatsia to help us realize our vision of a single national air traffic management system in Kazakhstan."
SkyLine's advanced surveillance and flight data processing capabilities enable it to fulfill multiple air traffic management roles for aircraft at different altitudes and within different areas of control. Depending on customer requirements, the platform can function as an en-route, approach or tower control system – supporting aircraft at all stages of their flight plan.
Lockheed Martin has more than 50 years of air traffic management experience.
