ERA has been awarded a contract to provide its composite multilateration and automatic dependent surveillance-broadcast (ADS-B) system NEO for Saudi Arabia airspace.

Known as Kingdom Wide ADS-B and Afif Wide Area Multilateration (WAM), the project was signed by ERA with Saudi Air Navigation Services (SANS) in April.

ERA noted that the implementation of the entire project is divided into two parts.

The first part of the contract called ADS-B project will see ERA deploying 14 dual ADS-B stations in the property of SANS for nationwide surveillance.

Under this phase, ADS-B system’s central processing system will be positioned in Jeddah and data will be distributed to Riyadh and Jeddah area control centres (ACC) centres and SANS headquarters.

The other part of the project involves the delivery of 14 WAM sensors with N-1 design.

According to ERA, the ADS-B system will also act as a WAM solution covering 150nm around the city of Afif in central Saudi Arabia, in the Najd region.

This second phase will also focus on providing extensive safety training for local staff.

ERA will work with a local subcontractor who will handle the equipment installation and local project management activities related to the project. The entire programme will be implemented in 18 months.

NEO is one of ERA’s proven multi-sensor systems that are designed to be able to perform even in rough outdoor conditions and extreme temperatures.
