London, UK, Nov 19, 2015 –Swedish Airport Operator Swedavia have selected Lockheed Martin (NYSE:LMT) to deliver a new generation of multi-airport operational systems that will transform the way critical information is shared with stakeholders across their network.
Swedavia is responsible for 10 state-owned airports in Sweden. A world leader in developing airports with the least environmental impact, Swedavia’s role is to create the access Sweden needs to facilitate travel, business and meetings nationally and internationally.
With passenger figures and flight movements forecast to grow by 50% in 2035, Swedavia identified Lockheed Martin’s Chroma Airport Suite as the technology platform that will enable strategic initiatives to manage this growth and deliver operational excellence for years to come.
In a multi-million dollar deal initially spanning 5 years, Lockheed Martin will install their Chroma Suite which includes a centralised Multi-airport Operational Database (AODB), Resource Management System (RMS) and Flight Information Displays (FIDS).
“This project will improve data quality, operational predictability and allow us to optimize resources and capacity across our entire network”, said Lena Rökaas, Head of Operations at Stockholm Arlanda Airport. “In other words, the systems will provide important support for us in the work to achieve our ambitious targets for operative excellence”.
Chroma is a consolidated suite of modules that have been specifically engineered for the multi-airport environment and has been successfully proven within airport networks globally.
“We have been at the forefront of aviation technology for over 100 years”, said Mark Cooper, Lockheed Martin, Managing Director Transportation and Energy. “Having worked already with Norway’s Airport Operator Avinor and the Finnish operator Finavia, our partnership with Swedavia is another innovative example of our work to improve information sharing and collaboration in multi-airport environments.”
