Raytheon has formed a team with Rockwell Collins and Honeywell International to compete for the second increment of the joint precision approach landing system (JPALS).

The air traffic management system will be provided by Raytheon, which served as prime contractor for the first increment of JPALS, while Rockwell Collins will provide datalinks and GPS subsystems for the land-based system plus avionics to validate end-to-end performance. Honeywell brings to the table its SmartPath ground-based augmentation system.
