Lockheed Martin to continue delivering IT services for United Kingdoms leading air traffic controller

NATS, the United Kingdom’s leading air traffic control company, has awarded Lockheed Martin a seven-year contract extension to continue support of air traffic management systems based at Swanwick and Prestwick control centers.

Under this new extension, Lockheed Martin will also support the NATS flight data processing system.

Lockheed Martin’s work with NATS encompasses a diverse array of services including systems architecture and engineering, software development, laboratory support and systems integration.

“Lockheed Martin plays an integral role at NATS,” said Martin Rolfe, NATS managing director, operations. “Our controllers are looking after aircraft in some of the busiest and most complex airspace anywhere in the world, so they need systems they can rely on. Throughout the years, we have built a very close partnership with Lockheed Martin, and I am delighted to see this continue.”

“We’re proud to continue collaborating with and supporting NATS,” said Sandy Samuel, vice president, Lockheed Martin Transportation Solutions. “Extending our agreement with NATS is a sign of our partnership’s strength and a demonstration of Lockheed Martin’s sustained commitment to air traffic management innovation.”

With more than 50 years of experience, Lockheed Martin is a world leader in air traffic management. Today, Lockheed Martin-built systems manage more than 60 percent of the world’s air traffic.
