Indra is implementing a new state-of-the-art radar in Tunisia to strengthen its air traffic control network, one of the most comprehensive and one that provides greater security and efficiency in the management of flights worldwide. The Spanish company has been working continuously with the Tunisian Civil Aviation and Airports Office (OACA., Office de lAviation Civile et des Aroports) for the past twelve years on the comprehensive configuration of a sky fully adapted to its needs.
It has modernized most of the country’s air traffic management systems, a key infrastructure for international trade and tourism, two of its main economic engines. In the current pandemic scenario that has hit the sector and reduced traffic around the world, OACA continues its strategy of continual improvement and is working with Indra to implement a secondary radar equipped with the latest advances in detection and aircraft identification , which is located in Akouda, a few kilometers from the tourist enclave of Susa, and will replace the system currently in operation.
OACA is thus strengthening the already dense network of eight primary and secondary radars and several Indra ADS-B systems that cover surveillance in this 163.6 thousand square kilometer country. These systems give you great flexibility in adapting to the sudden changes in demand that will occur in the months ahead. They also strengthen the ability to overcome incidents and ensure the highest level of security for all flight operations it manages.
The sensor network provides an extremely precise and high quality traffic view of the control center of the city of Tunis, from which all cross-country flights in the country are managed, as well as the other approach centers. Both the control center in Tunisia and the approach to the airport on the island of Djerba currently work with the Indra Air Automation system, one of the most technologically advanced and reliable solutions on the ATM market from some of the world’s leading navigation service providers.
