The US Air Force (USAF) Electronic Systems Center has completed the upgrading of Iraq’s air traffic control system as part of a foreign military sales (FMS) effort.

The completion involved delivery of two new air traffic control tower systems along with advanced radar and ATC-tower simulators to the Iraqi Government.

The control tower systems will allow management of Iraqi airspace in accordance with Federal Aviation Administration guidelines, while the simulators will provide training to military and civilian air traffic control operators.

Site acceptance testing was also conducted to integrate the advanced radar at the Baghdad Area Control Center.

FMS programme manager Rainy McIntosh said: "This radar integration is critical to ensure the Iraqi air force can sustain air sovereignty."
