Indra to install ground surveillance systems at five Canada airports

With these new systems, air traffic controllers can have an optimised overview of ground traffic.

Global technology and consulting company Indra has been given a contract from air navigation service provider NAV CANADA to deliver ground surveillance systems at five Canadian airports.

Under the contract, Indra will install its ground surveillance system called InNOVA at Ottawa, Quebec, Winnipeg, Halifax and St John’s airports.

Indra will also deploy a similar system at NAV CANADA’s training facility called NAV Centre, in Cornwall, Ontario, for training purposes.

Furthermore, a duplicate will be deployed at NAV CANADA’s Technical Services facility (TSC), located in Ottawa, Ontario.

The system will enable NAV CANADA’s technical experts to test, validate and provide user support across the nation from a centralised location.

Indra will supply and install a runway incursion monitoring and conflict alerting system (RIMCAS).

The new surveillance system will enable NAV CANADA to add automated functionalities for meeting future needs.

These systems will allow air traffic controllers to have an optimised overview of the ground traffic and offer runway incursion alert functionality to improve situational awareness.

NAV CANADA CNS Solutions director Warren Gosselin said: “The contract continues a successful relationship with Indra who we have worked with for more than 20 years.

“Throughout this relationship, their support and ability to adjust to our needs have been excellent, their solutions are very reliable and are adapted to meet our needs.”

For more than two decades, Indra is said to have been active in Canada, delivering more than 120 landing systems and nine surface movement systems.

In June, Indra upgraded principal air traffic control centres in Spain, allowing more flights to be managed in an environmentally friendly manner.

These centres manage flights crossing Spain in Madrid, Barcelona, Seville, Palma de Mallorca and the Canary Islands.
