ERA announced having been awarded a contract to deliver a surface multilateration system for the New Ulaanbaatar International Airport.
ERA in consortium with ACH Holding LLC, a well-known Mongolian company, will supply and install a multilateration system for a brand new international airport in Ulaanbaatar as part of the NUBIA Construction Project led by Mitsubishi-Chiyoda Joint Venture (MCJV).
The herein mentioned multilateration surface system is intended for surface surveillance of the aircraft as well as vehicles, equipped by an ERA ADS-B beacon, to provide safety and operational enhancement of ground surveillance for the Mongolian Civil Aviation Authority (MCAA), who will be the end user of the system, at the New Ulaanbaatar International Airport.
The proposed multilateration system based on NEO by ERA represents a modern, flexible and certified ATM surveillance system that can be easily further extended, once the second RWY is finalized. Generally, the multilateration system can be easily accommodated to any surveillance requirement, while maintaining low maintenance costs.
“Our joint delivery of the multilateration system for NUBIA together in consortium with ACH Holding LLC is another important reference for ERA, demonstrating our leading position in the ATM domain focused on surveillance,” stated Viktor Sotona, ERA Managing Director. He added: “In addition to another significant reference in Asia, we are pleased to participate in this interesting construction project led by a Japanese Joint Venture, where the quality of the products play a significant role in the project execution.”
The largest international air facility in Mongolia has been Chinggis Khaan International Airport, serving Ulaanbaatar, situated 18 km southwest of the capital. The new airport is due to be opened in Khoshigt Valleyn in 2016 -2017, 52 kilometres south of the city centre. The ERA system is planned for this larger airport currently under construction.
