Collins Aerospace, an RTX business, has delivered vehicle-mounted air traffic control systems to the U.S. Air Force to provide air traffic management in the most contested environments.

The units – called Air Traffic Navigation, Integration, and Coordination Systems (ATNAVICS) – are full air traffic control systems that are easily transported to support more austere environments. The systems incorporate new Primary Surveillance Radars, with significant range capabilities.

"These self-contained air traffic control systems can be set up quickly with a small crew," said Philippe Limondin, vice president and general manager, Resilient Navigation Solutions, Collins Aerospace. "The system is designed to be a full-service air traffic system for those in the field to have surveillance, precision landing and identification-friend-or-foe capabilities at their fingertips."

Collins' ATNAVICS radars provide air traffic services in inclement weather and adverse environments. The product features the latest transmitter technology, which enables increased efficiency.  

ATNAVICS supports the U.S. Air Force's Agile Combat Employment doctrine, providing expeditionary air traffic management, embedded mission command, and availability in highly contested environments.

ATNAVICS is currently in operations worldwide with the U.S. Marine Corps, the U.S. Army, the U.S. Air Force, and now available for expanded global operations under direct commercial sales.
