Era ADS-B and Multilateration Surveillance System Completes Site Acceptance at Budapest

RESTON, VA--(Marketwire - March 11, 2008) - Era Corporation successfully installed its MSS system for surface surveillance at the Budapest Ferihegy International Airport and achieved site acceptance with Hungarocontrol. The solution uses strategically placed sensors to provide extended coverage of runways, taxiways and aprons, improved automation of aircraft identification and enhanced surveillance in all weather conditions.

The Budapest Ferihegy International Airport, one of the fastest growing airports in Central and Eastern Europe, has been the subject of many infrastructure upgrades to prepare for further growth and demand. A comprehensive surface surveillance solution was needed to ensure optimal safety and efficiency during all ground movements.

"The installation in Budapest went flawlessly and the Hungarocontrol site acceptance testing was successful in all areas," said Russell Hulstrom, Era's Vice President and General Manager for the Air Traffic Management business unit. "Our track record of on-plan deployments is a product of rigorous program management and working closely with our customers and partners to achieve success as a team."

Era systems are the most widely selected and operationally proven ADS-B and multilateration systems in the industry. Era has been chosen in the vast majority of competitive procurements worldwide and has deployed systems in over 35 countries, including the world's first surface and wide area multilateration systems.
