New TopSky ATM system for Aruba Civil Aviation

On the 28th December, Mr Otmar E. Oduber, Minister of Transport for the Department of Civil Aviation in Aruba, signed for the acquisition of the Thales TopSky Air Traffic Management system (ATM) for the Orangestaadt Queen Beatrix International Airport.
This is an acquisition of the latest generation of Topsky, which is compatible with all types of modern sensors and is endowed with the best comprehensive set of safety nets on the market. This system will thus allow the Civil Aviation Department in Aruba to assure tighter control over the flight zone that they supervise.

In order to respond to the new International Civil Aviation Organisation flight plan for 2012, it is foreseen that this system will be delivered in record time so that it can be operational by the end of the summer.

The choice of Arubas civil aviation department to use Thaless systems confirms the competitive advantage of Thaless ATM TopSky product.

After Thaless previous success in Mexico, Santo Domingo and Colombia, this latest success in Aruba confirms Thaless progression in the Central American area and reinforces our image in a region where air transport is the first mode of regional transport.

With more than 130 radars and 25 Air Traffic Centres already installed in Mexico, Santo Domingo, Colombia, Ecuador, Chile, Argentina, Uruguay and Brazil, as well as navigation aids systems in operation in nearly all the countries of the region, Thales confirms its strong leadership in the broader Latin American region, where it has been present for more than 40 years.
