ERA to provide surface surveillance for Incheon Airport, Seoul

15 December 2014

ERA Company was recently awarded a contract for the surface multilateration system at Incheon International Airport in Seoul, capital of South Korea. The contract was assigned by Incheon International Airport Corporation. ERA will provide the multilateration part of the advanced-surface movement guidance and control systems (ASGCM-S) which should cover not only the airport area but also 20 nautical miles of terminal management area. The company will cooperate on the project with its tried and tested partners INDRA (data fusion), TERMA (surface movement radar) and HITEL (infrastructure).

The Incheon project is also an important milestone in ERA technological development due to its pioneering use of the recently introduced NEO system, an enhanced version of the ERA traditional product MSS (multi-sensor surveillance system). The actual installation will consist of 38 ground stations, 3 central processing stations and 2 remote and monitoring terminals. The final completion is planned for late summer 2017. The proposed system is designed according to RFT requirements and the ED-117 standard.

The team of ERA experts already carried out a site survey at Incheon Airport at the beginning of the autumn. "The Korean client appreciated the fact that ERA has begun its mission not only by taking part in the official opening ceremony of the Incheon project but also by sending engineers who immediately started the first phase of the project – the site survey of the airport terrain," stated the ERA project manager Petr Nováček.
