Indra wins Danish air traffic control radars contract

Indra has received a contract to supply air traffic control radars to the Royal Danish Air Force, a move that will strengthen the company's position in the north of Europe.

Indra has received a contract to supply air traffic control radars to the Royal Danish Air Force, a move that will strengthen the company's position in the north of Europe.

The contract was awarded in an international public tender run by the Danish Ministry of Defense, via the Danish Defense Acquisition and Logistics Organisation (DALO).

Indra competed with the world's leading radar providers to secure this project.

The company will install three systems, each equipped with a primary radar (PSR) and a secondary radar (MSSR) at Skrydstrup, Karup and Aalborg airfields to improve airspace surveillance and air operations.

The Indra PSR primary radar with an ability to cross-select equipment from the main and backup chains in the event of element failure, offers high-operational ratios.

The new generation MSSR can operate in cluster mode in coordination with other radars to avoid repeatedly interrogating the same aircraft, thereby becoming highly effective in regions of high traffic density, such as in the north of Europe.

The company has also provided mobile air traffic management systems to the Royal Australian Air Force (RAAF), ensuring that these military air traffic controllers have access to first-class airspace surveillance and air traffic control capabilities.

It also supplied air traffic management systems to Germany, Poland, Lithuania and Ukraine.

Indra, in collaboration with Alcatel-Lucent, deployed a system in Latvia to manage maritime traffic on the Baltic coast; as well as provided communication systems to shipyards.
