Boeing to partner with SELEX Systemi Intergrati on future air traffic management systems.


Aircraft manufacturer Boeing (NYSE:BA) and SELEX Systemi Integrati of Italy on Monday announced they have signed a Memorandum of Collaboration to work towards compatibility of global air traffic management systems.

Both companies will seek to cooperate on the Single European Sky ATM Research (SESAR) programme and the US Next Generation Air Transportation (NextGen) programme.

As air traffic management systems are improved with new technologies, including four-dimensional (4D) trajectory management, information management and performance-based navigation, it is said to be critical to establish common standards to harmonise these systems and ensure that aircraft can fly in all regions of the world.
