French company Thales has signed a contract with Iran’s Airports and Air Navigation Company (IAANC) to install air traffic control radars at three Iranian airports.

As stated by the Iranian Ministry of Roads and Urban Development, the radars will be provided for Shiraz, Tehran (Mehrabad) and Bandar Abbas airports.

Under the contract, Thales will provide the airports with primary surveillance radar (PSR) and secondary surveillance radar (SSR) units.

The radars will enhance surveillance radar monitoring and separation of air traffic at the Iranian airports.

"The radars will enhance surveillance radar monitoring and separation of air traffic at the Iranian airports."

In 2005, IAANC agreed to purchase five radars from the company, four of which Thales had delivered.

The remaining radar, to be installed at Bandar Abbas Airport, was not delivered. Iran paid 15% of the contract cost.

Last year, Iran issued a tender to buy radars for control towers, which was won by Thales among several other European companies.

Thales has agreed to deliver the remaining radar from the previous contract.

The current air traffic control radar used in Mehrabad airport is an 18-year-old model.

The delivery and installation of the radar device at the airports is set for 18 months.
