AMSTERDAM, 7 March, 2012. Raytheon Co.'s (NYSE: RTN) Mobile Air Traffic Control (MATC) system, which provides air traffic services when existing infrastructure has been damaged or has not been implemented, made its international debut at the ATC Global Exhibition and Conference.

MATC is designed to operate during emergencies, for security purposes, or to meet the needs of a temporary airfield. The system consists of primary and secondary ATC radars integrated with a deployable radar antenna and networked data communications. The system can be up and running within hours after being deployed.

Raytheon has developed an interoperable solution through the incorporation of various subsystems, including the Digital Airport Surveillance Radar (DASR)/ASR-11, the Standard Terminal Automation Replacement System (STARS) and Raytheon's AutoTrac III, a fully integrated surveillance and flight data processing system. Raytheon is in full-rate production of these systems.

MATC includes three shelters to transport and house the radar, communications and operations equipment.

The system, which meets U.S. and international regulations, is designed to support both civil and military ATC operations and communicate with other air traffic services and battle command systems.
