The PAC-3 missile
Greenwich - Feb 27, 2004
Megadata Corporation announced today that Raytheon Company, of Waltham, Massachusetts has contracted to use a customized version of PASSUR AirportMonitor as a tool in the development of future Patriot missile system capabilities.

"We're pleased we can be a valuable contributor to the Raytheon project," stated Jim Barry, Megadata's President & CEO. "This defense application is one of many new programs from our PASSUR national database of flight information, a natural asset for those who need timely access to an independent source of airspace data and analysis tools."

Today's public version of AirportMonitor is the industry's leading web-based flight tracking and information program for airport community relations, provided on airport websites. AirportMonitor provides graphics and data on flights in the terminal airspace, from the runway threshold to about 100 miles.

The version developed specifically for Raytheon as part of its defense-related research is an enhanced variation of the AirportMonitor 2.0 Gold application, providing additional secure information and capabilities available to authorized users who meet a certain threshold of operational and security requirements.

All PASSUR software solutions are supported by the network of PASSUR installations; the only nationally deployed, independent flight tracking and information system.

Megadata is a supplier of information, data services, and decision support software applications addressing the needs of the aviation industry, primarily airlines and airports.

The company's principal business is the delivery of data and software applications in the form of subscription-based services from the over 50-airport PASSUR Network of flight tracking systems. Megadata distributes its products through a direct sales force and through premier aviation decision-support technology firms.
