Indra's Surface Movement Guidance system goes live at Lithuanian Airport

Indra has completed the implementation of this A-SMGCS (Advanced Surface Movement Guidance and Control System) at Vilnius International Airport, following the recent delivery of the multilateration system.
The technology multinational has equipped the Lithuanian air navigation services supplier S.E. Oro Navigacija with an updated surface aircraft movement guidance and control system. It is a level 2 system: the maximum validation level by Eurocontrol.

"The solution has a double surveillance system composed of a surface movement radar (SMR) and a multilateration system (MLAT)"

The new multilateration system (MLAT) is composed of more than ten reception stations deployed around the airport to determine the exact position of the aircraft. The stations use the messages automatically issued by the aircraft to identify them and calculate their position.

This system is used in conjunction with the surface movement radar (SMR) and the system to present this radar's data in the tower, both of which were implemented by Indra in 2008, to form the current A-SMGCS with double surveillance sensors: SMR and MLAT. This solution will provide controllers with complete visibility of all the runway movements, making airport traffic movements safer and smoother. It also facilitates takeoff and landing control, improves punctuality, and increases the airport's traffic management capacity.

The constant increase of air traffic in Europe and greater frequency of landings and takeoffs, are forcing airports to implement this type of system. This contract has strengthened Indra's position in the field of a technology that has increasing demand.

Indra has consolidated its status as S.E. Oro Navigacija's technology partner, having previously deployed its airspace surveillance network
