September 26, 2011 – DIGITALiBiz (iBiz) announced today that it has been awarded a new Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) contract called Technical, Engineering, Administrative, and Programmatic Support Services (TEAPSS). TEAPSS is a five-year multi-million dollar contract to support the FAA’s Office of Flight Standards Service (AFS) – Flight Technologies and Procedures Division (AFS-400).
Steve Murray, iBiz COO and Executive Vice President said, “TEAPSS is a significant new contract win because it expands our FAA support to the FAA Mike Monroney Aeronautical Center in Oklahoma City, OK.” “We are truly excited and honored to win this contract that will help advance the goals and objectives of the FAA’s Office of Flight Standards,” added Murray.
Under the FAA TEAPSS contract, iBiz will provide support in several mission critical areas including assisting in the development of regulations and policy recommendations governing instrument flight procedures, safety, capacity, and efficiency improvements; aiding in the development of standards and criteria for communication, navigation, and surveillance (CNS) systems and new technology operations; providing flight software, hardware and operational expertise; providing support for National Airspace System (NAS) capacity issues; and supporting aviation weather programs and emerging business practices to improve flight operations, standardization, and aviation safety within the U.S. and international airspace systems.
“The iBiz Team, which includes our strategic partners Innovative Solutions International (ISI) and CAE, is invested in the business of aviation and is prepared to help the FAA and its stakeholders overcome the challenges of moving towards an improved NAS,” said Murray. “Our in-depth working knowledge of NextGen will certainly be a key factor in helping us achieve success for AFS-400.”
AFS-400 serves as the AFS focal point for the NAS capacity, aviation weather programs, and emerging business practices to improve flight operations, standardization, and aviation safety within the U.S. and international airspace systems. AFS-400 enables the implementation of new technology safely into the NAS.
