FAA awards 5-year contract to CSSI.


25 September 2014

US transportation and mobility solutions provider CSSI Inc said it was recently awarded an USD 8.5-m five-year contract by US aviation regulator the Federal Aviation Administration to provide separation standards analysis support at the William J Hughes Technical Center in Atlantic City New Jersey.

Under the deal, CSSI will provide domestic and global RVSM assistance, performance-based navigation support, international separation standards monitoring and ATC-system analysis as it relates to NextGen.

This contract will help the Separation Standards Analysis Branch advance changes in air traffic control system separation standards and meet the mandate delegated by the International Civil Aviation Organization to the United States, it said.

CSSI has a 17-year history of providing separation standards support, and has played a role in the development and implementation of Reduced Vertical Separation Minimum in the United States and abroad.

The firm serves as the FAA's lead contractor for domestic RVSM (DRVSM) implementation and remains the sole contractor supporting the safety oversight of DRVSM.

CSSI is also the sole support contractor of periodic RVSM safety risk assessments for the sovereign airspace of Canada and Mexico, and has supported the development of internationally harmonized RVSM guidance material and monitoring requirements.
