Consolidating its air traffic control (ATC) systems reliability and presence in the Mediterranean and North African area, SELEX Sistemi Integrati, a Finmeccanica company, has signed two contracts, valued at a total of €7 M, with the Office National des Aéroports (ONDA), the Moroccan Air Service Provider. The company will supply an ATC radar system in Fes-Saiss airport and an air traffic management (ATM) simulator in Marrakech’s Menara airport.

Within 12 months, plans are for the Fes-Saiss radar station to be equipped with an ATCR33-S primary radar, a SIR-S secondary radar with a last generation mode S transmitter, along with the relevant infrastructure and civil works. Within the first six months, the company will install the ATM training simulator at Marrakech airport.

This contract follows on from an agreement with ONDA in 2008, whereby SELEX Sistemi Integrati is implementing a complete radar station composed of an ATCR-33 mode S primary radar, a SIR-S secondary radar, and an approach control centre consisting of 13 workstations and related civil infrastructure.
