Fail-Safe Skies

The customer loved our system
by William B.

After retiring from the United States Air Force, I joined IBM, which later became Loral, in developing air traffic control systems for the FAA. I became Lockheed Martin staff when Loral was acquired in the early 1990s. We went on to develop a fully automated, voice-activated tower control system that our controller customer loved, but never funded.
