Tetra Tech has been awarded a $40 million, single-award contract to develop a new information system for tracking and analyzing medical information associated with pilots, air traffic controllers, and other aviation related personnel.

Under the five-year Aerospace Medicine Safety Information System (AMSIS) contract, Tetra Tech will support the FAA in the system engineering and design, system architecture development, testing, data analytics, training, and deployment of the system, said the company in a statement.

AMSIS is expected to replace existing legacy systems and functionalities and will also provide new capabilities to support AAM core safety initiatives such as Airmen Medical Certification, ATCS Medical Clearance, Industry Drug and Alcohol Testing Program (Drug Abatement), Aviation Medical Examiner (AME) Program, Internal Substance Abuse Program, and Aerospace Medical Research.
