    TMA - Traffic Management Adviser.  A new set of servers/workstations that start tracking the aircraft from up to two zones away to get them into the "pattern" for landing where they spend the least amount of time in holding patterns.

    ERIDS - Remember that bookcase at the end of every row?  Ever manual you had to look at, every map you had to go find, etc.  Are all now online with a touch screen system at the scopes.

    ERAMs - Replace the S390's they have with two long racks of equipment (about 1500)  to do the same thing they did.
