Air Traffic Control Radar Technology To Support Primary ATC Systems Throughout Asia and South America

ASC Signal Corporation today announced at the ATC Global 2011 Conference, it has begun shipping its advanced L-band air traffic control (ATC) radar antennas under a multi-million dollar contract it received from Thales Air Systems to provide 13 L-band radar antennas and related network equipment that will be deployed across Asia and South America
This contract reinforces ASC Signals position as the premium quality provider in the ATC radar market, as they now support all of the major contractors of ATC radar arrays at airports worldwide.
ASC Signal has been supporting ATC system prime contractors for over 30 years and is now delivering radar antennas to Thales, another major contractor, for the first time, enabling provision of its advanced, highly-reliable radar technology worldwide.  Thales and the major prime contractors have delivered ATC radar technology to all regions for several decades to help developing countries have better ATC technology for safer air traffic management. ASC Signals new relationship will enable air traffic control operators around the world to benefit from ASCs tailored solutions. 
Keith Buckley, ASC Signals President and CEO, said, ASC has developed radar antenna systems for use in nearly every part of the world for more than 30 years.  By providing Thales a very large quantity of advanced radar antenna systems for rapidly developing regions around the world, we are helping to ensure safer, more reliable and efficient air traffic operations and air traffic growth to and from all parts of the globe.

 ASC Signal received this contract to deliver radar antennas to Thales beginning in February and will continue to manufacture and deliver additional antennas through the end of 2011.  Both companies expect to discuss follow on orders in the future, specifically to enhance existing technology and support greater economic development.
