Advancing all phases of flight

We build and maintain the systems that keep our domestic airspace safe. For 50 years, GDIT has provided solutions to some of the FAA’s biggest challenges. From modernizing IT to mission-critical networks, our aviation expertise ensures more than a billion annual U.S. passengers are protected at every step of their journeys.

GDIT Advancing All Phases of Flight

NETWORKS

We bring our mission expertise to deploy, operate and sustain mission-critical networks for agencies, including network transformation, SDN and SD-WAN, TDM-to-IP transition, and cyber threat detection. Our capabilities provide telecommunications VoIP systems at over 1,000 FAA facilities for seamless, secure communications—anytime, anywhere.

SECURITY

GDIT keeps the FAA mission network secure. We developed and manage the critical security operations for FAADroneZone: the registration platform for public and commercial unmanned aircraft. We also secure the FAA’s gateway to the cloud.

INTELLIGENT AUTOMATION

We built the software for the National Airspace System that the FAA relies on every day to keep domestic airspace safe. Calculating and recommending standard maneuvers like arrivals, departures, and rerouting, Traffic Flow Management uses intelligent automation to assist in all phases of flight.

CLOUD

GDIT is the FAA’s secure gateway to the cloud with enterprise-scale infrastructure that’s both cost-effective and secure. With two dedicated data centers complete with connectivity to the FAA Wide Area Network, we work with strategic providers, AWS and Microsoft Azure, to maintain over 100 critical FAA accounts.

RESEARCH & DEVELOPMENT

With over 20 years supporting the NextGen Integration & Capability (NIEC) for the FAA, our complex lab and software design, including a mini-NAS and cockpit lab, trains the next generation of aviation safety experts. We also support FAA Airport Technology Research & Development, providing engineering for aircraft rescue, drone detection and new pavement formulations to make taxiways stronger and more durable.

RADIOS

Air Traffic Control (ATC) radios made by General Dynamics Mission Systems provide clear, reliable, ground-to-air communications for ATC centers, commercial airports and military air stations and range installations. More than 15,000 radios have been delivered and were the first deployed in the National Airspace System to support VoIP global standards.
