Finmeccanica has been awarded Air Traffic Control contracts totaling around €120 million. After the recent successes in Italy, Canada and Singapore, the Finmeccanica Security and Information Systems Division will provide Air Traffic Management/Air Traffic Control (ATM/ATC) systems in Malaysia, Saudi Arabia and Morocco. These countries will join the list of more than 150 countries already using the innovative, proprietary technological solutions based on efficiency, safety, performance and environmental sustainability.
Firstly, Finmeccanica has been chosen to partner with Malaysian company AAT to replace the current Air Traffic Control Centre (ATCC) with a new one located at Kuala Lumpur International Airport (KLIA), by 2018. The project includes the design, development and construction of a new air traffic management centre with the supply of primary and secondary radar, Automatic Dependent Surveillance-Broadcast technology (ADS-B), a Ground-Based Augmentation System (GBAS), a Global Navigation Satellite System (GNSS), VHF radios, AFTN/AMHS gateways and navigation aids.
Also, Finmeccanica Security and Information Systems Division will provide to the Royal Saudi Air Force (RSAF) a total of six ATC radar systems, control centers and communications, to be delivered by the end of 2017. In particular, three transportable ATC systems comprising primary and secondary radar subsystems, control and communication subsystem, and three fixed ATC systems including primary radar, secondary radar, and a control and communication centre will be supplied to RSAF.
Finally, the Moroccan Airports Authority (ONDA) selected Finmeccanica to improve the country’s national air traffic control radar system. The contract will see the company supply six co-mounted Perimeter Surveillance Radars (PSR) and Monopulse Secondary Surveillance Radars (MSSR) in the Southern Region of the country and one additional PSR for the Oriental region’s main hub.
