The contracts include two new Ground Movement Radars (GMR), an upgrade of the three existing radars and an expansion of the existing Multilateration (MLAT) System. Indra Navia's NOVA 9000 Advanced Surface Movement Guidance and Control System (A-SMGCS) will be adjusted accordingly to provide complete airport coverage.
The GMR and MLAT sensor upgrades, combined with upgrades to the NOVA processing system, provide not only immediate efficiency benefits to our operations but also enable us to respond to the future development and growth of our world-class airport operations," says Yousuf Pirzada, Vice President, Engineering DA-EP, Dubai Aviation Engineering Projects.
