Thales has signed a new contract with the Bulgarian Air Traffic Services Authority (BULATSA) for the delivery of one approach radar at Sofia Airport and two en-route radar systems.
The en-route radars will consist of co-mounted TRAC2000N L-band primary radar and RSM970S Mode S secondary radar. They will be installed at Vitosha and Varbitsa sites to improve surveillance coverage across Bulgarian airspace and enhance the integrity and quality of surveillance data for controllers.
The choice to replace end-of-life radars with the latest proven Thales systems, including the advanced TRAC2000N, the most powerful L-band transmitter on the market, was made following an international tender.
“We are extremely proud to have been selected by BULATSA for this major contract. This recognizes our continuous investment in improving the performances, the quality and the reliability of our ATC radars to an unmatched level.” says Olivier Achard, Thales Vice-President Sales ATM.
