KAC installs Indra’s InNOVA Tower System at Jeju International Airport

The installation of the new system is said to be part of Jeju International Airport’s modernisation and expansion project.

Global technology and consulting firm Indra has announced that Korean Airport Corporation (KAC) implemented its InNOVA Tower System at Jeju International Airport (CJU) in South Korea.

Indra’s tower system, which is known as the Airport Surface Detection Equipment (ASDE) in South Korea, has been designed to offer a complete view of aircraft, vehicles, as well as other moving objects to the KAC air traffic controllers.

Under the contract, Indra has delivered KAC its InNOVA Tower System, 13 controller working positions as well as a surface movement radar from Terma and a contingency system.

The deal was signed as a consortium between Indra, Hanjin Information Systems & Telecommunication and ERA that will offer a multilateration (MLAT) sensor system. 

Indra claims that its technology will help the KAC operators to have a precise overview and control of the ground traffic. It also added that the advanced safety alerts will further improve their situational awareness.

Implementation of the new system is said to be part of the modernisation and expansion project at Jeju International Airport. 

Indra International Sales manager Tomas Lubeck said: “Our ground surveillance system is already in use at Incheon Airport in Seoul, as well as in many of the busiest airports in the world.

“At Incheon, we proved that we manage to minimise downtime during installation, and that was important to this project. The airport is very busy as Jeju island is the most popular holiday destination in Korea.” 

In October last year, Indra secured a contract from KAC to supply and install its Normarc Instrument Landing Systems and Distance Measuring Equipment.
