The Standard Terminal Automation Replacement System (STARS) is a system jointly procured by the Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) and Department of Defense (DoD) to replace capacity-constrained, older technology systems at FAA and DoD terminal radar approach control facilities and associated towers. Raytheon Company is the prime contractor.
The STARS platform is being deployed under the FAA's Terminal Automation Modernization and Replacement (TAMR) program. By the end of FY2006, 43 STARS systems were on-line with this modern platform. The remaining STARS TAMR Phase 1 sites and Phase 2 sites will be completed by the end of FY2008
