Salt Lake City ARTCC
Salt Lake City ARTCC (1962-Present) - One of 20 FAA Air Route Traffic Control Centers in the lower 48 United States. Established in 1962 near Salt Lake City International Airport in Salt Lake City, Salt Lake County, Utah. Assigned an FAA ID of ZLC. Active FAA Air Traffic Control Center.
Salt Lake City Air Route Traffic Control Center (ZLC) is one of 25 FAA Area Control Centers, 20 in the lower 48 United States. The center is located in Salt Lake City adjacent to the Salt Lake City International Airport in Salt Lake County, Utah. The present facility was Commissioned in 1962. The Salt Lake City Center (ZLC) covers part of the Western Service Area.
On 14 Jun 2012, the FAA decommissioned the 4-decades-old En Route Host computer system at the Seattle and Salt Lake City ARTCCs and replaced the system with the new En Route Automation Modernization (ERAM) system. As of 27 Mar 2015, all 20 of the lower 48 United States ARTCCs had converted to the ERAM system as had the FAA Academy in Oklahoma City, Oklahoma.
ERAM technology is the heart of the Next Generation Air Transportation System (NextGen) and the pulse of the National Airspace System (NAS), helping to advance the transition from a ground-based system of air traffic control to a satellite-based system of traffic management. ERAM can process data from 64 radars versus the 24 radar processing with the legacy HOST system.
Active facility in Salt Lake City, Salt Lake County, Utah.
