Cairo International Airport, Africa's second busiest airport in terms of passenger traffic and first in terms of freight volume, has seen substantial infrastructure enhancements, including a recently constructed third terminal and a nearly completed third parallel runway. As a result, NANSC sought a comprehensive and easily adaptable surface surveillance solution that could accurately and precisely locate all aircraft on the airport's surface to enhance safety and improve efficiency.

"NANSC required a surveillance solution capable of handling the complex surface layout of the Cairo International Airport," said Era Systems Corporation Senior Vice President Kevin Layton. "NANSC chose Era not only because of our extensive experience in delivering surveillance solutions at large and complex airports, but also because of our unwavering commitment to exceeding all of our customers' expectations--an attribute that NANSC has experienced first-hand."

In 2005, Era supplied NANSC with a vehicle tracking solution to monitor all vehicle ground movements on the airport's surface. This system will be integrated with Era's future solution to provide air traffic controllers with a complete and total view of all airport surface movements.
