Indra Navia and NAV CANADA announce the achievement of three significant milestones, following the installation of nine NOVA 9000 Airport Surface Detection Equipment (ASDE) systems and more than 100 NORMARC Instrument Landing Systems (ILS) across the country since 1999.
NAV CANADA has selected Indra Navia to supply 15 NORMARC 7000B ILS over the next 2-3 years, as a part of the final phase of its ILS replacement program. Indra Navia was awarded the initial contract in September 2002 for the first phase of NAV CANADA's ILS replacement program. Subsequent contracts for further installations followed and after the program’s completion, the NORMARC ILS will have become the standard landing system for NAV CANADA with around 115 NORMARC ILS’ in operation.
In addition, Indra Navia’s latest generation NOVA 9000 ASDE system has been put into operational use at Toronto International Airport. NAV CANADA and Indra Navia have successfully completed the Site Acceptance Test and final handover for a complete upgrade and system installation, which includes an integration and fusion of two upgraded surface movement radars (SMRs) and a multilateration (MLAT) system. This includes 16 controller working positions, sensor fusion, runway safety logic, the Runway Incursion Monitoring and Conflict Alert System (RIMCAS), false target mitigation, and a complete system support facility for the TSC in Ottawa.
As one of the most trusted ATM solution providers, Indra Navia received its 11th Supplier Performance Award since the first contract in 1998 for, as the award letter stated, “providing outstanding support” to NAV CANADA. The 4th phase award of the ILS Replacement Program and the successful SAT at Toronto are confirms the successful relations between the 2 companies.
“Indra Navia is proud of being a key supplier of NAV CANADA’s critical air traffic management systems and contributing to NAV CANADA’s award-winning status. We dedicate ourselves to creating long-term value for our customers and appreciate that our efforts are being rewarded and appreciated,” says Eldar Hauge, President and CEO of Indra Navia in Norway.
