Italy-based Leonardo-Finmeccanica has won a contract to provide four new air traffic control (ATC) radar systems for China’s National Instruments Import and Export (Instrimpex).

The four ATCR-33S NG primary radars will be used during flight departures and aircraft landing.

Developed on the basis of Leonardo’s ATCR-33S ENH systems, the newly ordered radars will also be used for extended terminal area surveillance (ETA).

Equipped with gallium nitride (GaN) power transistor technology, the ATCR-33S NG radars further provide improved transmission power in all weather conditions.

"The radars are also equipped with new technology available in the communication, navigation and surveillance market."
