FAA's SWIM program is drowning
A Federal Aviation Administration program designed to
streamline data communications among all NextGen air traffic systems has no
clear path for achieving its goals, according to an audit issued June 15 by the Transportation Department’s Inspector General's Office.
The audit found that the System Wide Information Management
(SWIM) program, still in its early development stages, is more than $100
million over budget and is running behind schedule by two years.
The FAA has agreed with the IG's six recommendations for organizing
SWIM to mitigate further costs and delays.
