Solutions to advance the Next Generation Air Transportation System
At General Dynamics IT, we are committed to the Federal Aviation Administration's (FAA's) vision to transform America's National Airspace System (NAS). From cockpits, flight decks and control towers to runways and radar stations, managing the NAS during the next 10 years and beyond means "fly more passengers, more cargo, more types of aircraft, more safely, more precisely and more efficiently, using less fuel, making less noise and creating less environmental impact."*
