An agreement has just been signed between HungaroControl, the national air navigation service provider of Hungary, and Indra Navia AS, the world leading air traffic management solution provider from Norway, for the delivery of several NOVA 9000 technologies from Indra Navia’s complete portfolio of Automated, Integrated, and Remote Tower Solutions.
Indra Navia’s NOVA 9000 Advanced Surface Movement Guidance and Control System (A-SMGCS) will be installed at the remote tower facility (rTWR) at Budapest Liszt Ferenc International Airport (LHBP). To further enhance ground surveillance and control, Indra Navia will also deliver an upgrade of the multilateration (MLAT) system and integration, control and monitoring of the airfield ground lighting (AGL) system. Indra Navia will also be responsible for the related civil works together with Hungarian partners.
The rTWR will be capable of controlling all traffic at LHBP in all weather conditions with the same capacity as currently possible using the existing control tower (TWR). To achieve this, all TWR equipment will be duplicated in the rTWR. Additional equipment will be added to facilitate visualisation.
