The initial investigation, initiated on November 2, 2011, resulted in a negative determination, issued on January 13, 2012. The determination was applicable to workers and former workers of Era Systems, LLC, formerly Era Systems Corporation, a subsidiary of Systems Research and Applications Corporation, Syracuse, New York. The notice of the Affirmative Determination Regarding the Application for Reconsideration was published in theFederal Registeron February 28, 2012 (77 FR 12080).

During the reconsideration investigation, the Department clarified the worker group. Specifically, the Department determined that the subject worker group consists of workers and former workers of Era Systems, LLC, formerly Era Systems Corporation, a subsidiary of Systems Research and Applications Corporation, 6647 Old Thompson Road, Syracuse, New York (TA-W-81,047) and Era Systems, LLC, formerly Era Systems Corporation, a subsidiary of Systems Research and Applications Corporation, 6712 Brooklawn Parkway, Suite 106, Syracuse, New York (TA-W-81,047A). Both locations are engaged in activities related to the supply of research and development services for air traffic components and software used for tracking and transmitting flight-related data.

To support the request for reconsideration, the petitioner supplied additional information regarding a possible shift to/acquisition from a foreign country by the subject firm in the supply of like or directly competitive services.

Based on information provided during the reconsideration investigation, the Department determines that worker separations at the subject firm are related to a shift in the supply of research and development services (or like or directly competitive services) to a foreign country and that the shift in the supply of research and development services (or like or directly competitive services) contributed importantly to the worker separations at both 6647 Old Thompson Road, Syracuse, New York and 6712 Brooklawn Parkway, Suite 106, Syracuse, New York locations.

Conclusion

After careful review of the additional facts obtained on reconsideration, I determine that workers of Era Systems, LLC, formerly Era Systems Corporation, a subsidiary of Systems Research and Applications Corporation, 6647 Old Thompson Road, Syracuse, New York (TA-W-81,047) and Era Systems, LLC, formerly Era Systems Corporation, a subsidiary of Systems Research and Applications Corporation, 6712 Brooklawn Parkway, Suite 106, Syracuse, New York (TA-W-81,047A), who were engaged in employment related to the supply of research and development services for air traffic components and software used for tracking and transmitting flight-related data, meet the worker group certification criteria under Section 222(a) of the Act, 19 U.S.C. 2272(a).
