Lockheed Martin Air Traffic Control System Operational in Korean Area Control Center

Lockheed Martin's SkyLine air traffic management system is now operational in Korea, controlling traffic 24/7 in one of the world's fastest growing airspaces. Teamed with Samsung Data Systems of Seoul Korea, Lockheed Martin completed the 36-month long project with a successful transition to full operational service in the new Korea Area Control Center (KACC) in Incheon on October 17. "Our Korean system is the largest SkyLine installation in Asia," said Jim Craig, vice president of International Programs at Lockheed Martin Air Traffic Management. "The KACC has a magnificent new facility in Incheon, and we are very pleased that the installation and testing went so well. We look forward to expanding our services in this region."

Installed at the new Incheon International Airport in South Korea, SkyLine is now used by KACC controllers to manage 860 daily aircraft movements in the Korea Flight Information Region, while interfacing with other aviation automation systems in Korea. Under a contract awarded in 1999, Lockheed Martin Air Traffic Management adapted its SkyLine air traffic management system for Korea while Samsung Data Systems, the prime contractor, provided consoles, installation and training.

The new Korea Area Control Center SkyLine system includes proven radar data processing with multi-sensor tracking; state-of-the-art flight data processing; human-computer interface tools that provide a rich set of graphical windows tailored to simplify controller monitoring and tasks, and data preparation with a fully graphical adaptation tool.

Other Lockheed Martin SkyLine systems have been installed in Scotland and Argentina, and SkyLine is installed and being customized for New Zealand. Additionally, the company's short-term conflict alert systems operational in Germany are based on SkyLine's air traffic control applications.

Lockheed Martin Air Traffic Management employs approximately 1,300 people at major facilities in Rockville, Maryland; Atlantic City, New Jersey; Eagan, Minnesota, and Southampton, England.

Headquartered in Bethesda, Maryland, Lockheed Martin is a global enterprise principally engaged in the research, design, development, manufacture and integration of advanced-technology systems, products and services. The Corporation's core businesses are systems integration, space, aeronautics and technology services.
