Raytheon to Provide Improved Surveillance Capability for National Airspace System

  • To increase safety, efficiency and capacity in world's most complex airspace system
MARLBOROUGH, Mass. - Raytheon Company (NYSE: RTN) has been awarded a contract by the U.S. Air Force to incorporate Automatic Dependent Surveillance - Broadcast (ADS-B) capability into its suite of APX-119 Identification Friend or Foe (IFF) transponders to support the Federal Aviation Administration's NextGen plan for transformation of the National Airspace System.

The subsequent planned U.S. Air Force implementation schedule of ADS-B capability into the APX-119 transponders is scheduled to be completed well in advance of the deadline in the FAA's final rule, mandating compliance by 2020.
