Federal Aviation Administration
CNSI assisted the Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) in fulfilling the requirements of the National Airspace System (NAS) – the air traffic-control tool that enabled the FAA to fulfill its mission of providing safe and efficient use of national airspace. The NAS is comprised of radar target, weather detection and processing systems; air traffic processing and display systems within the EnRoute and Terminal air traffic control environments; communications systems; flight plan data information systems; and NAS maintenance and support systems. CNSI performed maintenance on NAS systems and functions related to new deployments.
CNSI also:

  • Supported the process improvement initiatives and procedures in completing application development and technology upgrades for the NAS.
  • Provided software design services including system analysis and planning, coding and testing in support of Remote Maintenance Monitoring (RMM) programs.
  • Designed information systems and work systems, assisting the FAA in the development of its Service Life Extension Program (SLEP), which provided a solid foundation for potential system enhancements.
  • Provided full SDLC support, including system design, development, testing, integration and deployment, for the Rehost of the National Airspace Data Interchange Network (NADIN) Message Switching Network.
  • Updated and maintained all technical documentation for ASR-9 radar facilities, including Electronic Equipment Modifications and System Support Directives.
  • Worked with site installation efforts including patch management, an operating system service maintenance packs for windows environment; physical relocation of network services; and installation of content switch for web load balancing and re-cabling of the switch room.

We also supported the FAA with implementing its new program to improve the enterprise security posture. The Logical Access and Authorization Control Service (LAACS) program will deploy a new enterprise-wide security capability to protect the confidentiality, integrity and availability of agency data, information systems and information technology, collectively referred to as logical resources. These logical resources are the foundation of every mission-driven business process critical to the FAA agencies, both internal and external, in achieving their respective missions. The LAACS program represented an initial, enterprise security policy capability. Although portions of this capability may exist within certain applications, this service will provide a standardized, automated and consolidated enterprise capability for the FAA to provision, manage, monitor and audit logical access security policies and implementation across logical resources.
