SRA Subsidiary to Deploy Additional MSS Solution for DFS

Era a.s., a subsidiary of SRA International, Inc. (NYSE: SRX), today announced it has been selected by Deutsche Flugsicherung GmbH (DFS) to deploy a multilateration and ADS-B surveillance solution at the Berlin-Brandenburg International Airport. The award announcement follows Era's recent successful installations for DFS at Munich and Hamburg.
The Berlin-Brandenburg International Airport, scheduled to open in 2012, will become the German capital's primary commercial airport and will serve its roughly 3.4 million residents. Era's next-generation surveillance solution will be integrated into the airport's advanced-surface movement guidance and control system and was chosen to ensure that the surface operations run as safely and efficiently as possible.

"DFS's selection of Era, after Era's successful deliveries in Munich and Hamburg, reinforces its position as a leader in next generation surveillance solutions," said Era Systems Corporation Senior Vice President Kevin Layton. "MSS by Era provides high accuracy, coverage and reliability - and does so with extremely low acquisition and maintenance costs. This makes it the ideal surveillance solution for both new and existing airports."

MSS by Era is a scalable solution, allowing for comprehensive surveillance of all areas of an airport's surface. This flexibility also allows airports to quickly address surveillance needs brought about by increased demand or airport structural changes.

Era a.s. provides next-generation air traffic management tools that address core challenges like safety, efficiency, profitability and functionality. Its innovative use of proven next-generation technologies, like multilateration and ADS-B, help air navigation service providers (ANSPs) and airport operators ease capacity constraints; improve airspace and ground space efficiencies; and reduce costs. SRA does not announce sales amounts for individual Era contracts; Era contracts for their air traffic management business typically range in value of $1-2 million, and may be up to $5 million.
