RAYTHEON AIR TRAFFIC CONTROL SYSTEM COMMISSIONED IN CANADA

 LEXINGTON, Mass. Feb. 3 /PRNewswire/ -- A new air traffic control radar data processing system installed by Raytheon Company's Canadian subsidiary has been commissioned in ceremonies at the Moncton, New Brunswick, Area Control Center.
 The recent ceremony was conducted by the Honorable Shirley Martin, Canada's Minister of State for Transport.
 The Moncton Area Control Center (ACC) provides services to air traffic operating in and out of airports in eastern Canada, as well as enroute air traffic to and from destinations across the North Atlantic. The Moncton ACC handled more than 367,000 air traffic movements in 1992.
 The system, manufactured by Raytheon Canada, is a key element of Transport Canada's Radar Modernization Project (RAMP). Under RAMP, Transport Canada has awarded Raytheon Canada contracts worth about $600 million for the manufacture and delivery of 41 solid state radars and 39 automation systems across Canada. The Moncton ACC automation system commissioning followed the earlier commissioning of a terminal control unit at Calgary, Alberta.
 John Stewart, president and general manager of Raytheon Canada Limited, said, "Commissioning of RAMP systems, which have all been delivered and formally accepted by the customer, is an indication of the confidence of Transport Canada's air traffic operations and maintenance staff in Raytheon systems.
 "We will support Transport Canada fully in commissioning the remaining RAMP systems over the next few months. "
 Stewart added that, "With the commissioning of RAMP systems, Canada will be equipped with one of the most sophisticated air traffic control systems in the world, incorporating fully solid state and digital primary and monopulse secondary radars and microprocessor-based automation systems.
 "As a result of the delivery of the RAMP systems to Transport Canada, Raytheon has developed a completely modernized and enhanced family of ATC systems products for the international marketplace. Raytheon is now well positioned to accept global challenges in ATC systems."
 Raytheon, headquartered in Lexington, Mass., is a $9 billion, international technology company with sales in four business segments: Electronics, Aircraft Products, Energy and Environmental, and Major Appliances.
