System Wide Information Management (SWIM)

SWIM Overview

With millions of aircraft arriving and departing airports across the globe, more information is being shared between air navigation service providers, airlines and airports. L3Harris is a global leader in managing this information exchange. Our team members and solutions have contributed to successful SWIM implementations and demonstrations across the world. They distribute, govern and transform data into valuable information.

Access to more aviation data at a lower cost.

L3Harris’ portfolio of information management solutions has a wide range of depth and diversity to help users with an array of needs. They harness aviation information for managing air traffic flow, reducing long-term infrastructure costs and collaborating within and beyond their airspace. Our team of SWIM experts have deployed solutions across the United States, Europe, Asia and Australia and deployed with new technologies such as cloud computing.

The L3Harris SWIM team operates the Federal Aviation Administration's (FAA) aviation data-sharing infrastructure, connecting dozens of FAA programs and hundreds of internal and external users.

To connect these users and programs, FAA SWIM handles terabytes of data daily. Since initial implementation in 2012, L3Harris has worked closely with the FAA to evolve the capabilities to meet these needs and ensure SWIM provides real-time access to data to enable operations across the United States National Airspace System (NAS).

L3Harris is ready for the growth of aviation infrastructure.

FAA SWIM provides foundational benefits for future aviation infrastructure growth.

  • Provides integrated information management through application of service-oriented architecture principles at an enterprise level
  • Delivers the right information─ reaching the right user at the right time─ by combining advanced technical capabilities with robust governance
  • Reduces integration costs by using industry standards for easy data ingestion

More Access to Aviation Data

L3Harris gives more aviation groups access to more aviation data, all with open-sourced technology.

Evolving Information Management

As air traffic operation changes, so do the technologies that enable their safety and efficiency.

L3Harris is harnessing cloud technology for tomorrow’s airspace.

User-centric Solutions

How aviation stakeholders access information is more important than ever and L3Harris is improving this process significantly by automating SWIM services.


Optimizing Information’s Benefits

On its own, aviation data is often displayed simply as lines of data and code. We’re translating raw data into actionable information to provide the FAA and stakeholders benefits.
