Indra has begun operations on two radar stations in the Moroccan cities of Tangier and Casablanca to improve air traffic services.

The Casablanca radar station will provide air traffic surveillance services surrounding Mohammed V International Airport, while the Tangier radar will enhance services to Morocco’s other important airports.

Both the radar stations are equipped with primary radars and S Mode secondary radars, which will help in detection of any aircraft movements with maximum precision, even in the adverse weather conditions.

The Tangier station will support radar surveillance in a transit area for routes connecting Europe and Africa with growing traffic volume.

Indra has delivered two new simulators to support air controller training, which are located at Mohammed V International Airport and the National Air Safety Control Centre in Casablanca.

Indra has also expanded the existing simulator located in Agadir, which the company had installed in 2002. The simulators can operate as actual traffic control centres in case of emergency.

In 2011, Indra ‘s three new automatic dependent surveillance-broadcast (ADS-B) stations, deployed in Morocco, began operations that are expected to enhance the nation’s surveillance coverage.

Additionally, Indra is working on expanding Morocco’s VSAT advanced satellite communications network, which will ensure communications between radar systems, ADS-Bs, control centres, control towers and communication towers.

Indra has also installed the automated traffic management system, which is used to supervise the air traffic of the whole country from the Casablanca control centre.
