Finmeccanica Security & Information Systems Division has signed a major contract to replace the old air traffic control (ATC) radars at 12 major Canadian airports including Toronto, Montreal, Ottawa, Vancouver and Calgary. The agreement with NAV CANADA includes options for follow-on phases and replacement of additional radars. Work has commenced and is due to be completed by 2027.

It is the largest ATC contract award for Finmeccanica in the last 10 years, which was awarded after a Request for Proposal process which involved stiff competition among several companies. Finmeccanica’s world-class radar technology and its track record in terms of quality, performance, reliability and life cycle support provided assurance that the company will be able to successfully undertake and deliver on this project, which involves technological complexity and stringent requirements for operation in challenging Canadian airport environments.

NAV CANADA owns and operates Canada’s civil Air Navigation Service (ANS) and is recognized worldwide to be one of the most efficient and demanding ANSPs in terms of performance and safety requirements. Finmeccanica is proud to have been awarded this contract in competition against a pool of international providers, attesting to its outstanding capabilities in ATC technology and serving to elevate its brand globally as a leader in the ATC radar market.
