FTI Program Overview FTI is an 18-year managed service contract where L3Harrisrepresents the FAA in working with local telco vendors toinstall NAS communication services FTI is utilized to improve performance and downtime on radiocommunication, radar, weather updates, and distancemeasuring equipment FTI has increased services in Alaska over the last 5 years:––––––Growing from 14 services to over 700Reducing FAA-owned systems (ASTI reduced by 20 sites)Replacing FAA-owned 900Mhz Microwave systems with leased servicesReplacing GSA services being used for the NAS operations100 more services are installed and ready to be tested put into operations100 services have been ordered and are planned for 2022-23March 1, 2022Alaska Air Carrier Association AnnualAviation Convention & Trade ShowFederal AviationAdministration5

Mission Support Overview Mission Support FTI‒ Provides administrative IP data and FTI Mission Support Wide Area Network fornetwork connectivity for day-to-day agency businesses such as payroll, personnel,email applications, and administrative phones‒ Supports client server applications, the FAA’s Intranet web server operation, andis the medium for user access to the FAA’s Intranet and the public Internet Administrative‒ General category of administrative telecommunication services that are notadministered via FTI‒ Services that are ordered and planned to be ordered through GSA ContractVehicles that provide local LEC services, toll free services, administrative satelliteservices, etc. FAVES: FAA Administrative Voice Enterprise Services‒ Program developed to transform the Agency’s multiple premise basedadministrative phone systems into a centralized and modern infrastructure basedon Voice over Internet Protocol (VoIP) and IP Telephony technologies that providea greater degree of flexibility and opportunities to reduce operating costsMarch 1, 2022Alaska Air Carrier Association AnnualAviation Convention & Trade ShowFederal AviationAdministration1111

Mission Support in Alaska Alaska currently has 16 Administrative Facilities and 343Operational Facilities transitioning to EIS FAA is performing a transformation of services, not like forlike. Transition must be complete by May 2023 Workbooks have been created to document all currentservices at a facility– The EIS Vendor will review those services and provide atransformed solution FAA will accept the proposed solution and orders will besubmittedMarch 1, 2022Alaska Air Carrier Association AnnualAviation Convention & Trade ShowFederal AviationAdministration12
