Swedish state-owned airport operator Swedavia has contracted Lockheed Martin to provide next-generation multi-airport operational systems.

Under the five-year multi-million dollar deal, Lockheed will deliver its Chroma Airport Suite as the technology platform to help transform the way critical information is shared with stakeholders across Swedavia's network.

The Chroma Airport Suite, which includes a centralised multi-airport operational database, resource management system and flight information displays, will be installed in ten Swedavia-operated airports in Sweden.

Lockheed Martin Transportation and Energy managing director Mark Cooper said: "We have been at the forefront of aviation technology for over 100 years.

"We have been at the forefront of aviation technology for over 100 years."

"Having worked already with Norway's Airport Operator Avinor and the Finnish operator Finavia, our partnership with Swedavia is another innovative example of our work to improve information sharing and collaboration in multi-airport environments."

Chroma is a consolidated suite of modules specially designed for multi-airport environment and has attained global approval and success within airport networks.

The Chroma Suite technology will also help manage traffic flow at the airports. According to Lockheed, passenger figures and flight movements are expected to increase by 50% in 2035.

The technology platform is also expected to enable strategic initiatives to manage this growth and deliver operational excellence now and in future.

Stockholm Arlanda Airport head of operations Lena Rökaas said: "This project will improve data quality, operational predictability and allow us to optimise resources and capacity across our entire network.

Stockholm Arlanda Airport is one of the ten airports under the management of Swedavia.
