PARIS -- Collins Aerospace announced the French Direction Générale de l'Armement (DGA) has selected the company's vehicle-mounted Air Traffic Navigation, Integration, and Coordination System (ATNAVICS) for the tactical control, approach and landing capabilities of the French Armée de Terre.

With this order, France joins the U.S. Army, U.S. Marine Corps, and U.S. Air Force in the use of this solution for rapid ground control approach deployment. The announcement took place at Eurosatory during a signing ceremony with representatives from both parties.

Packaged into the most capable, lightweight and compact configuration available, ATNAVICS provides air traffic services for the rapid deployment of troops and equipment to remote locations or in support of humanitarian missions in severe environments.

ATNAVICS is the world's only fully autonomous and complete mobile Ground Controlled Approach compliant to International Civil Aviation Organization standards. It is fully mission-tested for operation and survivability on the battlefield. With over two decades of service in the U.S. and 54 systems currently in operation, ATNAVICS has received continuous upgrades and enhancements ensuring its longevity.
