ERA has won a contract to supply an Advanced Surface Movement Guidance and Control system to Heydar Aliyev International Airport in Baku, Azerbaijan.

The company’s solutions include an air traffic control system aided by a surface movement radar and ERA’s MSS mulitlateration system.

The system will help reduce the risk of runway incursions and other ground traffic-related incidents, which are likely as a result of an increase in traffic.

"This contract builds on the success that Azerbaijan Air Navigation Service has experienced with its wide area multilateration system deployed to monitor low flying helicopters and aircraft over the Caspian Sea," said ERA managing director Vladislav Hofman.

ERA will deliver the system with partners HITT and Terma.

Azerbaijan Air Navigation Services Department’s head of development Farhan Guliyev said that the new system uses the infrastructure previously deployed by ERA, thus ensuring a smooth deployment and certification process.

Heydar Aliyev International Airport is located 20km from capital Baku; it has two terminals (northern and southern) and a cargo terminal.

Azerbaijan’s airspace is covers a 165,400km2 area, of which 86,600km2 is spread across land and 78,000km2 above the Caspian Sea.

The route network amounts to around 8,000km.

Czech Republic-based Omnipol had recently acquired radar-maker ERA, a subsidiary of US-based SRA International for an undisclosed sum.

The company has delivered its radar systems to 100 civilian and military airports in 50 countries, the company said.
