Northrop Grumman's Electronic Flight Strip System achieves successful Site Acceptance Test at Prague Ruzyne International Airport

Northrop Grumman Corporation's Europe-based air traffic management subsidiary, Northrop Grumman Park Air Systems, has undergone a successful Site Acceptance Test (SAT) for the NOVA 9000 Electronic Flight Strip System (EFSS) at the Prague Ruzyne International Airport, Czech Republic. This SAT is a significant milestone in the conversion of Prague's air traffic control tower operations from traditional paper strips to an integrated EFSS. The contract encompasses three separate systems; the operational EFSS, a test system and a simulator system. The simulator system is with Park Air Systems for software testing in preparation for the second SAT. The Air Navigation Services of the Czech Republic has participated in factory training, with project completion and site training scheduled for October 2012.
