INDRA reinforces its position in Ukraine with contracts to modernise Air Traffic Management

Indra, the premier IT company in Spain and a leading IT multinational in Europe, will implement its automated air traffic management system in Kharkov airport control centre, one of the Ukrainian cities to host the 2012 Euro Cup.

Besides this, it will extend the capacity of the Dnepropetrovsk airport by creating new workstations in its control tower and will renew the radar surveillance systems of this airport as well as those of Simferopol. These contracts exceed 6 million Euros and the execution period will conclude at the beginning of 2012.

The contract is part of the programme by UkSATSE, the air traffic services supplier of the country, to prepare the infrastructures for the 2012 Euro Cup in whose organisation Poland will participate along with Ukraine.
More capacity
The system to be implemented by the company in Kharkov will facilitate the management of a great amount of flights during the international sports event.
The new air traffic controller positions will reinforce the capacity of Dnepropetrovsk airport to manage a greater amount of flights. The company already undertook the implementation of its automated air traffic management system in the control centre near this city, which runs the air space of the East of the country.
Besides this, the technology modernisation of the radar systems located in the control centres of Dnepropetrovsk and Simferopol will include secondary radar systems with Mode S capability, rendering accurate identification of aircrafts.

These new contracts reinforce Indra's position in Ukraine as well as its relationship with UkSATSE. The Spanish company has won these contracts after being awarded the modernisation of Donetsk airport automated management systems. In the past, Indra equipped this airport with its surface radar system which facilitates operations in adverse weather conditions and poor visibility.

Polish sky in Indra's hands
This time two countries, Ukraine and Poland will organise the Euro cup. In the case of Poland, Indras technology already manages most of the countrys air space.
In 2005 the company was awarded a contract to implement a unified air traffic management system which included cutting-edge air space surveillance and automated traffic management systems. Within the project, Pegasus 21, we should mention the start up of Warsaw control centre which is among Europes largest. 
Eastern Europe is one of Indra's strategic markets due to the strong growth rate of the country's economy during the last years. In this region, the company has engaged in the modernisation of the air traffic infrastructures of Lithuania, Russia, Bosnia and Herzegovina, Ukraine or Macedonia. In addition to this, it has undertaken Information Technologies projects for other sectors in the Czech Republic, Slovakia, Hungary, Moldavia and Romania.
