Oracle Lands Huge Deal with FAA
August 11, 2004

Robert Westervelt of writes of the recent deal made between the FAA and Oracle.

"The U.S. Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) has selected Oracle Corp.'s 10g and Oracle 10g Spatial as part of its geographic information systems. Data stored in 10g and the spatial software will be used to automate new versions of flight procedures and flight routes across America.

Aviation System Standards, a department within the FAA, produces more than 10 million individual national airspace charting products per year for use by military, commercial and private aviators.

Pilots use the flight procedures to safely navigate airspace. To keep up with new cell phone towers and tall buildings that translate to changes in flight patterns, the department publishes new flight procedures every 56 days -- and issues change notices every 28 days."

Rick Jordan, a spokesman for the FAA's IT Policy and Requirements Program commented,

"Oracle has a five-year enterprise procurement contract with the FAA, said . Jordan said the license with Oracle runs through May 2005.  The whole agency is using Oracle. There's an enterprise license for it and procurements are based on that license."

Robert also writes that:

"The FAA also chose Oracle Application Server 10g for its Web services capabilities, the ability to integrate numerous data sources. The agency will also be able to share data with other applications and organizations that require spatial information."
