The Agency for Air Navigation Security in Africa and Madagascar (ASECNA) has selected Thales to modernise and harmonise its air traffic control centres in Senegal, Congo, Niger, Ivory Coast, Chad and Madagascar.

Following the modernisation, ASECNA will be compliant with the latest International Civil Aviation Organisation standards, particularly the ICAO Flight Plan 2012 format.

The new ATC systems include a multi-sensor tracking system that will integrate all surveillance means – radars, ADS-B, ADS-C, multilateration and wide area multilateration – and will harmonise the ATC centres to reduce operation and maintenance costs.

In addition, Thales will also deliver a training and test platform for air traffic controllers, which will allow ASECNA to optimise airspace monitoring and provide smoother ATC services to airlines in the region.

ASECNA handles five flight information regions, covering 16 million square kilometres across Africa.
