Colombia's Aerocivil, a state organisation responsible for controlling and regulating civil aviation in the nation, has awarded Indra a contract for the acquisition, installation and start-up of communications, navigation, surveillance and air traffic management (CNS-ATM) systems for Eldorado International Airport (Bogotá). The total contract amount is $30 million.
The new systems guarantee the efficient management of the nation's air traffic control, enabling significant savings for airline companies, significantly reducing the environmental impact of air operations, and complying with the most demanding air navigation safety standards.
This contract is the largest of its type to be awarded in Latin America so far this year. Indra was one of the three companies in the world capable of meeting the strict technical requirements for the bid. The project stands out because it incorporates the most advanced technologies in a wide array of systems.
