Emirates Airline has ordered three Controller Working Positions (CWP) to be connected to the existing SMGCS at Dubai International Airport and installed at their main operations centre at their Dubai Headquarters.
The CWPs will provide the airline with a real-time graphical picture showing the positions of all aircraft on the ground and in the air within a range of 15NM of Dubai International Airport. The picture is based on surveillance of aircraft and vehicles on the ground by three Surface Movement Radars (previously delivered by Northrop Grumman Park Air Systems as part of the SMGCS System) installed at the airport and of airborne aircraft detected by the local Airfield Surveillance Radar.
Northrop Grumman Park Air Systems and the Swiss ATC operator, Skyguide, have entered into a framework agreement for the supply of Normarc 7000B ILS for their civil and military airports from 2008 until 2014. The contract was concluded in May 2008 with delivery of Category III system to Geneva's runway 05. The two companies have had a similar agreement in place since 2003, and Northrop Grumman Park Air Systems are very satisfied with the confidence shown by Skyguide. Northrop Grumman Park Air Systems and Skyguide have worked together to find technical solutions that provide Category III landings in some of the worlds most challenging topographic and climatic conditions.
