Tetra Tech to support civil aviation programme in Mexico

The company will develop a national civil aviation master plan for the Mexican Federal Civil Aviation Agency.

US-based engineering company Tetra Tech has secured a contract from the US Trade and Development Agency (USTDA) to facilitate a civil aviation programme in Mexico.

The company will optimise airspace communications, navigation, surveillance and air traffic management as part of the 18-month technical assistance contract.

In addition, it will provide a national civil aviation master plan for the Mexican Federal Civil Aviation Agency utilising simulation models and advanced data analytics.

Tetra Tech also plans to make use of its Volans software as a service (SaaS) tool to support optimised airspace capacity, economic analysis and environmental solutions.

The project aims to help the Mexican government carry out its mandate to oversee air traffic management in the country.

Tetra Tech chairman and CEO Dan Batrack said: “The Tetra Tech Federal IT Group has provided lifecycle services to support the Federal Aviation Administration and other international aviation authorities in their mission to deliver safe, efficient, and sustainable airspace for more than 20 years.

“We are pleased to use our cutting-edge Volans technology to support USTDA and the Mexican civil aviation programme in this critical transportation infrastructure project that will improve aviation performance, operations, and safety as part of Mexico’s multi-year National Infrastructure Program.”

Tetra Tech provides high-end consulting and engineering services for water, environment, sustainable infrastructure, renewable energy and international development projects.

The company employs a total of 21,000 colleagues.

Earlier this year, Tetra Tech secured a patent for its Volans 3D animation and visualisation software, which is designed to evaluate the environmental impacts of air traffic activity.

Volans analyses noise and carbon emissions in conjunction with the Federal Aviation Administration’s (FAA) Aviation Environmental Design Tool (AEDT)

The company said the software is being used by the FAA, as well as air navigation organisations in Canada, Australia, South America and Europe.
