RESTON, Va. - Leidos, a global science and technology company, was awarded a contract by Airways New Zealand to replace the current air traffic management (ATM) platforms with Leidos' SkyLine Xsystem.

"This includes efficiencies enabled by the introduction of world-class flow management capabilities and an integrated approach that enables their vision for a single system to support tower, terminal, en-route and oceanic control."
