Air traffic management solutions provider Indra Navia has secured contracts to provide surveillance coverage at Dubai International Airport (DIA).
A subsidiary of Indra, the company has secured surveillance upgrade contracts as part of DIA’s rapid development project.
The scope of the contracts includes the installation of two new ground movement radars (GMR), an upgrade of three existing radars and an expansion of the existing multilateration (MLAT) system.
Indra Navia president and CEO Eldar Hauge said: "Indra Navia is a top supplier of safety and efficiency-related air traffic management systems for the Dubai airports."
Indra Navia will also adjust its NOVA 9000 Advanced Surface Movement Guidance and Control System (A-SMGCS), which has been operational at the airport since 2004.
The company claims that the data integration from the new and upgraded sensor systems with the NOVA A-SMGCS processing system will provide controllers with significantly improved situational awareness.
Dubai Aviation Engineering Projects engineering DA-EP vice-president Yousuf Pirzada said: "The GMR and MLAT sensor upgrades, combined with the NOVA processing system upgrades, provide not only immediate efficiency benefits to our operations but also enable us to respond to the future development and growth of our world-class airport operations."
