Lockheed Martin Air Traffic Management has delivered initial next-generation controller workstations ten months ahead of schedule to the Seattle air-route traffic-control centre (ARTCC). Seattle is the first of 21 sites, which will receive the Display System Replacement (DSR) air-traffic-control (ATC) equipment. The workstation replaces aging ATC hardware. The early delivery will allow the US Federal Aviation Administration to conduct training and familiarisation before the equipment goes operational in 1998. The Salt Lake City ARTCC will begin receiving DSRs in October 1997.
