Posted 10 March 2016 · Add Comment

Finmeccanica has announced during the World ATM Congress in Madrid the award of contracts totalling around €120 million.

The Finmeccanica Security and Information Systems Division will now provide Air Traffic Management/Air Traffic Control (ATM/ATC) systems for Saudi Arabia, Morocco, and Malaysia. These three customers will join the list of more than 150 countries already using Finmeccanica’s innovative, proprietary technological solutions based on efficiency, safety, performance and environmental sustainability. 

Finmeccanica Security and Information Systems Division will provide the Royal Saudi Air Force (RSAF) with a total of six ATC radar systems, control centres and communications, to be delivered by the end of 2017. In particular, three transportable ATC systems comprising primary and secondary radar subsystems, control and communication subsystem, and three fixed ATC systems including primary radar, secondary radar, and a control and communication centre will be supplied to the RSAF. 

The Moroccan Airports Authority (ONDA) selected Finmeccanica to improve the country’s national air traffic control radar system. The contract will see the company supply six co-mounted Perimeter Surveillance Radars (PSR) and Monopulse Secondary Surveillance Radars (MSSR) in the South of the country and one additional PSR for the Oriental region’s main hub. This deal makes Finmeccanica the largest supplier of radar sensors to Morocco, the African country with the largest number of ATC radars.
