Indra has signed a contract with the Central American Corporation for Air Navigation Services (COCESNA) to renew the air traffic management systems in the San José Air Control Center and the main international airports in Costa Rica for 12 million dollars.
The company will upgrade the systems in the center for the coordination of air traffic in Costa Rica and the towers that manage the approach and landing maneuvers in the international airports of Juan Santamaría –the most important, serving the city of San José; that of Daniel Oduber Quirós, in Liberia; and that of Tobías Bolaños Palma, which also serves the capital. Indra is one of the leading suppliers of air traffic management systems in the world, and has installed its systems in over 4,000 facilities and 160 countries.
The San José Center will also incorporate Garex 300 advanced voice communication systems –part of Indra's family of IP communication systems–, and Neptune voice recorders. The multinational has agreed with COCESNA to equip this center with an advanced system that complies with the Level 3 NAM protocol, the most advanced means of streamlining coordination between control centers when transferring the responsibility for the management of a flight. Costa Rica will be the first country in the world with technology incorporating this protocol.
