The US Federal Aviation Administration has formally accepted the initial display-system replacement (DSR) developed by Lockheed Martin Air Traffic Management. The delivery culminates 23 months of development and testing to assure operational performance of the next-generation air-traffic-control (ATC) system. Lockheed Martin will produce the controller workstations under an $898 million fixed-price incentive contract. The first unit will be delivered to the Seattle ATC centre in late 1997, while the last will be installed at Boston in 2000.
