OMNIPOL Group member ERA has received a contract for the delivery of surface and wide area multilateration (WAM) surveillance at the Málaga-Costa del Sol Airport in Spain.

The contract was awarded by ENAIRE, the Spanish air navigation service (ANS) provider, and will include the company deploying the surface and WAM system at the Andalucía airport.

ERA will replace the older multilateration (MLAT) system with a new version of the ERA MLAT system, called MSS- 5.

The firm plans to carry out the project ‘with its tried and tested Spanish partner SEAIRTECH as the prime contractor that will be responsible for the actual installation’.

The MSS-5 system, which is an improved version of ERA’s traditional multilateration surveillance system (MSS) product, has been designed according to the newly applied air traffic management (ATM) standards.

ERA will provide the net of ground stations (GS) that will replace the on-site system as well as extend the coverage to a second runway.

The GS located on the surrounding hills will help cover the flying corridors in its vicinity, in addition to the airport surface area.

Until final acceptance by the customer, the ERA system implementation will be applied within the full function of the existing MLAT system.

ERA sales manager Jan Žemlička said: “The end-user appreciated the fact that ERA began its mission immediately by sending engineers who launched the first phase of the project – the site survey of the airport infrastructure.”

After Madrid-Barajas, Barcelona and Palma de Mallorca airports, Málaga Airport is claimed to be the fourth busiest international airport in Spain.
