Joint Fusion Marshall Team
Project MARSHALL is the key Air Traffic Management programme for the Ministry of Defence (MOD) as it will provide the capability to support UK military flying and air deployed operations for the long term. These Air Traffic Services will provide air traffic control and air traffic management for all of the MoD’s aerodromes and air weapon ranges both in the UK and overseas including those used for deployed operations. It will also ensure that obsolescence is removed from the current system and that the MOD complies with emerging regulations for managing an air traffic service that enables the safe operation of its aerial platforms. Project MARSHALL will be a “managed service” which will deliver savings over the lifetime of the programme through improved efficiencies, scale and innovation. MARSHALL will enable the MOD to continue to conduct flying operations, contributing to the protection of UK sovereign airspace including support to counter terrorism.
Fusion Air Traffic Management has strengthened its team by adding industry specialists BT Global Services, Frequentis, Moog Fernau and Park Air Systems. Fusion has been established to address the future air traffic management needs of the UK Ministry of Defence.
The four specialists and qualified providers will further enhance the unparalleled experience and expertise of the Fusion team which also includes Lockheed Martin, Finmeccanica Company SELEX Systems Integration and Cobham.
