OSLO, Norway, June 18, 2014 /PRNewswire-iReach/ -- Indra Navia and NAV CANADA announce the achievement of three significant milestones, following the installation of nine NOVA 9000 Airport Surface Detection Equipment (ASDE) systems and more than 100 NORMARC Instrument Landing Systems (ILS) across the country since 1999.
NAV CANADA has selected Indra Navia to supply 15 NORMARC 7000B ILS over the next 2-3 years, as a part of the final phase of its ILS replacement program. Indra Navia was awarded the initial contract in September 2002 for the first phase of NAV CANADA's ILS replacement program. Subsequent contracts for further installations followed and after the program's completion, the NORMARC ILS will have become the standard landing system for NAV CANADA with around 115 NORMARC ILS' in operation.
In addition, Indra Navia's latest generation NOVA 9000 ASDE system has been put into operational use at Toronto International Airport. NAV CANADA and Indra Navia have successfully completed the Site Acceptance Test and final handover for a complete upgrade and system installation, which includes an integration and fusion of two upgraded surface movement radars (SMRs) and a multilateration (MLAT) system. This includes 16 controller working positions, sensor fusion, runway safety logic, the Runway Incursion Monitoring and Conflict Alert System (RIMCAS), false target mitigation, and a complete system support facility for the TSC in Ottawa.
