UK air navigation services provider NATS has awarded Lockheed Martin UK a seven-year contract extension for ATM system support at its Swanwick and Prestwick centers. The contract also includes support for the NATS flight data processing system.

Lockheed Martin provides a range of services to NATS, including systems architecture, systems engineering, software development, systems integration and laboratory support. 

Under the extension, Lockheed Martin Information Systems and Global Solutions will continue to provide domain experts across all aspects of engineering and program management. The work will sustain approximately 150 jobs annually in Whiteley, Hampshire.

NATS managing director operations Martin Rolfe said: “Lockheed Martin plays an integral role at NATS. Our controllers are looking after aircraft in some of the busiest and most complex airspace anywhere in the world, so they need systems they can rely on.”

Both organizations were among the first to achieve certification against the BS11000 collaborative working standard and are active participants on the foundation board of the Institute for Collaborative Working.
