Indra has signed a contract with Central American Corporation for Air Navigation Services (COCESNA) to deploy a primary surveillance radar (PSR) for the Augusto Cesar Sandino International Airport in Managua, Nicaragua.

The contract was signed on the first day of the World ATM Congress held in Madrid, Spain.

The deal adds to COCESNA's network of non-cooperative radars installed in the terminals of its major airports.

It was signed in the presence of COCESNA executive chairman Jorge Vagas; the chairman of the board of directors of COCESNA, Carlos Salazar; Indra general manager, Rafael Gallego; and Indra chairman and CEO Fernando Abril-Martorell.

The surveillance radar can identify intrusions in the terminal airspace of manned and unmanned aeroplanes with no transponder.

It also features a weather channel enabling COCESNA to provide weather information for the region.

"The surveillance radar can identify intrusions in the terminal airspace of manned and unmanned aeroplanes with no transponder."

The new radar at Managua Airport is similar to another radar recently installed by Indra at the Monsenor Oscar Arnulfo Romero y Galdamez International Airport in El Salvador.

The company will also install a radar at the Juan Santamaría International Airport in San Jose, Costa Rica.

Indra's technology has been integrated to cover the airspace managed by COCESNA in Central America.

Indra has supplied its technology to several countries in Latin America, including the Bahamas, Ecuador, Colombia, Uruguay, Chile, Peru, Argentina, Paraguay and Brazil.
