Exelis (NYSE: XLS), a global leader in providing critical network solutions, has been selected by the Port of Seattle to provide its Noise Monitoring and Flight Tracking System (NMFTS) to Seattle-Tacoma International Airport (Sea-Tac), Washington. The system will provide accurate and timely 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, spokesperson for Sea-Tac Airport.
“Exelis is the largest supplier of noise monitoring and flight tracking systems in North America with deployments at 48 airports today. Our partner, Larson Davis, has noise monitors currently deployed at 20 airports,” said Ted Carniol, general manager of commercial aviation solutions at Exelis. “Together, our proven solution will assist Sea-Tac with noise management as it continues to build upon a record number of traveling passengers, annually.”
Exelis will provide a suite of solutions including Symphony® EnvironmentalVue™, Symphony® PublicVue™, and NextGen Data. Symphony EnvironmentalVue is a Web-based application hosted on an advanced geospatial information system platform that provides integrated two and three-dimensional mapping and analytical flight-tracking capabilities to airport operators. With the Symphony PublicVue community Web portal, the public can see aircraft flight-tracking data and submit feedback and noise complaints via any standard Web browser for improved community relations. Users can also define their location with a smartphone or tablet and show the relative position of the aircraft to that location.
