ORLANDO, Fla., 24 August 2006. Adacel, maker of software integration, simulation development, and speech recognition technology, has received additional contract amendments from Lockheed Martin to support work on the Federal Aviation Administration's (FAA's) En Route Automation Modernization (ERAM) and Advanced Technologies and Oceanic Procedures (ATOP). The total value of the new contractual amendments is $2.2 million.

FAA's ERAM program -- designed and implemented by Lockheed Martin -- replaces existing US En Route air traffic control automation systems and infrastructure with new and enhanced safety, surveillance, and decision making tools for air traffic controllers.

When fully deployed by 2009, ERAM will enable controllers to manage more than double the number of current flight plans, and use data from nearly three times the number of surveillance sources over the current system. Under the program, Adacel will continue to provide support to Lockheed Martin for software development.
