Thales delivers seven additional ATM radars in Brazil

Thales confirms its exceptional footprint with more than 100 radars delivered in 30 years.

Thales announces it has just delivered seven additional radars to support civil air-traffic management to the Brazilian Airspace Control Department (DECEA).

In Barcelos, North-West of Manaus, Thaless RSM 970 S radar will be connected to the Manaus Air Traffic Control centre in order to monitor en-route air traffic over Amazonian airspace. To support the approach to Navegantes airport, 170 km South of Curitiba, Thales
will supply STAR 2000/RSM 970 S co-mounted radars. Furthermore, to improve the countrys coverage Thales will soon be commissioning LP 23 SST/RSM 970 S co-mounted radars in both Tefe, at the southern border with British Guyana and Sinop, city of Mato Grosso located 400 miles north to Cuiaba.

For all these new radars Thales will rely on its local company, Omnisys, for training, radar installation and commissioning as well as for the local production of the LP 23 SST, a primary radar with a 200 NM range. Omnisys is also in charge of training and installation of some radars sold to countries such as Colombia or Mexico.
Thaless systems will enable DECEA, the department  in charge of implementing air traffic control systems in Brazil, to extend its monitoring and to enhance the safety of the Brazilian airspace.

 We are proud of continuing a 30 years partnership with CISCEA and helping the Brazilian civil aviation community to continuously improve the monitoring and the safety of one of the largest airspaces in the world, says Rémi Gille, Thales vice-president in charge of Air Traffic Management business. With these two additional successes, Thales further extends its exceptional footprint in Brazil where it has already supplied more than 50 radar stations to the Brazilian authority.

Featuring cutting-edge technologies, the Thales LP 23 SST, STAR 2000 and MSSR RSM 970 S radars are designed to cope with dense air traffic and to meet any airports surveillance
requirements, for both the en-route and approach phases. These systems use advanced technology that is continuously improved and updated in order to remain at the forefront of radar technology. Thales is also providing complete support for a period of more than 30 months, including technical assistance, repairs to  electronic components, training and mechanical maintenance.

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 America, where it has been present for more than 40 years.
