Raytheon Company has signed a teaming agreement with WEY Technology (WEYTEC), a global leader in advanced data visualization and operator control solutions, to co-develop the next-generation air traffic controller workstation called Multi-platform ATC Re-hosting Solution, or MARS.
Raytheon, WEY Technology (WEYTEC) co-develop the next-generation air traffic controller workstation called Multi-platform ATC Re-hosting Solution, or MARS.
"As the skies grow more crowded, controllers need the best technology to efficiently manage the airspace," said Matt Gilligan, vice president, Raytheon Intelligence, Information and Services. "Not only will MARS workstations make their jobs easier, they will make the world's airspace system safer."
Today in the U.S., air traffic controllers use Raytheon's Standard Terminal Automation Replacement System, or STARS, to provide safe and efficient aircraft spacing and sequencing guidance for more than 40,000 departing and arriving aircraft daily at both civilian and military airports.
The Raytheon-WEYTEC team aims to replace the current systems, and similar ones abroad, with advanced, modern workstations that seamlessly integrate flight-critical applications, such as surveillance, weather, flight and airport data, onto touchscreens for enhanced airspace management.
WEYTEC, a Swiss company, brings smart tech to airport command and control centers around the world through the transmission, control, distribution and display of real-time data critical to efficient flight operations.
"Our integrated keyboard, video, and mouse switch solutions are autonomous, scalable, and IP-based, which makes them ideal for complex multiscreen workplaces like those found in air traffic control management," said Armin Klingler, Chairman of the Board of WEY Group AG.

Panasonic’s Darren Hitchcock spoke with the I-Connect007 Editorial Team on the complexities of moving toward ultra HDI manufacturing. As we learn in this conversation, the number of shifting constraints relative to traditional PCB fabrication is quite large and can sometimes conflict with each other.
In my last column, I discussed cutting-edge innovations in printed circuit board technology, focusing on innovative trends in ultra HDI, embedded passives and components, green PCBs, and advanced substrate materials. This month, I’m following up with the products these new PCB technologies are destined for. Why do we need all these new technologies?

Intel announced one of the industry’s first glass substrates for next-generation advanced packaging, planned for the latter part of this decade.
I have been in and around circuit boards most of my life. I started 20 years ago in my family’s PCB shop, leaving after a couple of years to start my own software company. About a year ago, I returned to the family business, and the first thing I noticed was that nothing had really changed. We were doing the same things in the same way as the day I left. After talking to several experts in the industry, I realized it was worse than that: The manufacturing of PCBs had not changed in 70 years.
