Fewer Delays, Safer Skies: Lockheed Martin Launches SkyLine Enterprise

No matter the destination, every traveler hopes for a smooth, easy ride when they board an aircraft. While they sit back and relax, air traffic controllers are behind the scenes keeping their eyes out for weather and other potential delays. 

Lockheed Martin recently launched its SkyLine Enterprise™ air traffic management solution, building on the corporation’s 50 years of air traffic control management. Skyline Enterprise enables air traffic controllers to search for potentially dangerous or delaying conflicts on an aircraft’s flight path in real-time. The system then helps to manage airspace traffic to reduce delays.

“With SkyLine Enterprise, civil and military aviation authorities can operate more efficiently while reducing costs,” said Sandy Samuel, vice president, Lockheed Martin Transportation Solutions. “For travelers, Skyline Enterprise deployments mean fewer delays and safer skies.”

Skyline Enterprise also includes advanced software that enables controllers to track aircraft more accurately, ultimately helping them descend more efficiently. This feature saves fuel and reduces noise from low-level aircraft flying overhead.

Skyline Enterprise enables aircraft to fly more direct and efficient flight plans, resulting in fuel savings. The system can quickly change airspace designations to accommodate military or civil aircraft needs and help controllers reroute aircraft accordingly.

“Nearly 60 percent of the world’s air traffic management systems incorporate Lockheed Martin’s technology,” said Samuel. “We’re continuing our 50 year tradition of air traffic management safety, innovation and continuous improvement with Skyline Enterprise.”
