ERA has announced that it has been awarded a contract to deliver a MLAT system to enhance the safety of one of the major Italian airports serving the city of Turin. The contract is the result of an international tender issued by ENAV S.p.A., an Italian Air Navigation Service Provider.
ERA teamed up on this important project with a well-known local company VITROCISET S.p.A, which has experienced the successful cooperation with before. They worked together on an extensive proposal for ENAV, which has been tailored in accordance with the technical specifications defined by ENAV as well as in line with a site survey carried out at Turin Airport. The ERA&VITROCISET team has already started working on the implementation of a turn-key surveillance solution based on multilateration technology.
“We view this win as a major success in light of the highly competitive environment here in Italy! ERA’s selection is the result of a tendering procedure. ERA scored highest on the defined evaluation criteria under the extremely challenging conditions of major local players and finally obtained a contract to demonstrate the abilities of its systems in Italy”, stated Jakub Thomas, ERA Sr. Sales Manager.
The proposed NEO by ERA is the 4th generation of the certified mature Multi-sensor Surveillance system MSS, which have been previously installed in over 60 countries. This multi-solution system (MLAT, WAM, ADS-B, PRM, HMU) has a robust system design, enhanced signal detection, reduced power consumption and is compliant with international standards (ED-117, ED 142, ED 129, ICAO Annex10 volume IV, etc.)
