Global consulting and technology company Indra has received a new contract from the Central American Corporation for Air Navigation Services (COCESNA) to upgrade seven air traffic surveillance radars in Central America.

With an aim to boost safety in Central American airports, Indra will digitise the air traffic surveillance systems distributed in four countries and the Cayman Islands.

The seven radars are situated in Monte Crudo and Dixon Hill in Honduras; Puerto Cabezas in Nicaragua; Mata de Caña and Poas Volcano in Costa Rica; Cerro Santiago in Guatemala; and Grand Cayman, Cayman Islands.

Under the terms of the contract, the company will equip the surveillance radars with advanced digital features that enable flexible maintenance and enhancement, as well as optimise costs.

“Indra will also modernise the systems that enable remote management of the air traffic surveillance radars."

As part of the project, Indra will also modernise the systems that enable remote management of the air traffic surveillance radars.

After the upgrade, the radars will operate under the same conditions as the next-generation radars that will be installed in Costa Rica, San Jose and Belize within the programme for modernising and standardising COCESNA systems.

Digital reception technology will enable the application of advanced processing techniques for pulses emitted and received by the radars, making it possible to eliminate noise and enhance the accuracy with which an aircraft is detected.

In addition, Indra will install automatic dependent surveillance – broadcast (ADS-B) receivers in Mode S radars to reinforce their operational capabilities.
