Dépèche transmise le 28 septembre 2011 par Business Wire

WASHINGTON--(BUSINESS WIRE)--CSSI, Inc., a technical and engineering services company headquartered here, recently won a contract from the Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) to support airspace redesign activities at large metroplexes throughout the United States. The contract, with a one-year base period and four option years, is worth more than $6 million.

“This is exciting work because we’ll be able to leverage our expertise in air traffic management, airspace safety, and airspace capacity”

“This is exciting work because we’ll be able to leverage our expertise in air traffic management, airspace safety, and airspace capacity,” said Cynthia Castillo, CSSI president and CEO. “We’re looking forward to getting started and continuing to help the FAA make the skies more efficient.”

The work will focus on optimizing the airspace around up to 21 of the nation’s busiest airports – including Washington, D.C., Dallas, Charlotte, Northern and Southern California, Houston, and Atlanta – through the FAA’s Optimization of Airspace and Procedures in the Metroplex (OAPM) program. Once completed, OAPM will help address major issues faced in today’s busy metro areas, including flow congestion, inefficient routing and altitudes, airports in closing proximity and other factors like environmental constraints.

As the selected contractor, CSSI will participate in airspace study teams and support team members in their development of notional airspace and procedure redesign efforts. CSSI employees will also support the design and implementation teams in their actual design of airspace and procedural efforts through design and implementation phases, and will provide program management, documentation, and report development support.

With several years’ experience supporting the FAA in other airspace redesign activities, CSSI is well-suited for the job. CSSI has been a trusted contractor to the FAA for almost 20 years, and in 2010 had the honor of winning the agency’s largest contract ever awarded to a small business – a $280 million deal to provide systems engineering support. Since then, the company has steadily grown to about 350 employees in Washington, New Jersey, South Carolina, and other locations.
