The Royal Air Force of Oman (RAFO) has awarded a contract to US-based ITT Corporation to provide Air Traffic Control (ATC) solutions at the RAFO’s new operational base.

Under the contract, the company will provide a turnkey ATC solution, which includes Terminal Air Surveillance Radar (TASR) and enhancing primary and secondary surveillance capabilities.

In addition, ITT will supply a suite of navigational aids, communications, training, logistics support and will install a third line depot facility in Oman to support RAFO’s long-term self-sufficiency and growth.

ITT developed TASR as a future generation radar that can identify, sequence and separate participating aircraft and coordinate aircraft identification while providing final approach guidance through air defence corridors and zones.

The ATC solution will work in sync with the existing ATC systems in Oman, enhancing RAFO’s operational efficiency and performance.

The company is expected to deliver the ATC solution to the RAFO by the end of 2011.
