Indra is to install a primary radar at Lima Airport in Peru and a 3D tower simulator at the air traffic controller training centre for the Corporación Peruana de Aeropuertos y Aviación Comercial (CORPAC).

The company won contracts for the projects in a public tender run by the International Civil Aviation Organisation (ICAO).

The primary radar will be installed along with a mode S secondary radar previously deployed by Indra.

However, the secondary radar will be relocated to increase CORPAC’s control over a new runway, which is being developed as part of the airport’s expansion plans.

"The simulator will offer 360° visuals and simulate virtual aircraft and tower approach manoeuvres, as well as pilot-controller communications."

Under the terms of the second contract, the company will deliver an upgraded 3D control tower simulator for the city’s air traffic controller training centre.

The simulator will offer 360° visuals and simulate virtual aircraft and tower approach manoeuvres, as well as pilot-controller communications.

It will provide trainees with a comprehensive knowledge of systems at the Lima tower and control centre, as well as in the major airports of Peru.

The technology provider has collaborated with CORPAC to upgrade Peru’s air traffic management infrastructure.

The upgrades will allow the country’s airports to handle greater traffic volumes and attract more airlines, which will be able to develop operational centres in Peru.
