NATS winning more business in US
NATS Inc. working in Washington DC
NATS opened its US office in October 2011, providing first hand ATM operational expertise to support key FAA bids.
Our latest success is as a member of the winning team for the DCIS contract. The $331 million project will allow air traffic service data to be transmitted directly to pilots via an aircraft’s on-board avionics. This award follows our success earlier in 2012 as a part of the team that won the FAA’s ETASS contract, providing support services for NextGen’s En Route ATC modernisation.
