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.

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.
