Ukraine Entrusts Modernisation of Simferopol's Air Traffic Management System to Indra

24 September 2013

- This new contract is the latest in a series of contracts awarded to Indra for upgrading the country's air navigation infrastructure
- The company has already implemented this same system and deployed radar in various control centres and airports
- Indra strengthens its relationship as UkSATSE's technology provider

Indra was awarded the contract to implement its air traffic control system in the control centre of Simferopol airport in Ukraine. This project is part of the progressive modernisation of air navigation infrastructure that UkSATSE, the country's air navigation services provider, is carrying out. 

The Indra solution will support en route air traffic management in the entire region assigned to Simferopol, as well as approaches to the airport and tower service. This same system is already in operation in Dnipropetrovsk, Donetsk and Kharkiv. 

This new contract shows the confidence UkSATSE has in the multinational's solutions. The automated management system will make it possible to handle a greater volume of air traffic from Simferopol, while increasing safety and efficiency. 

It will also improve coordination with other control centres, both in Ukraine and in neighbouring countries that use this type of technology, facilitating the exchange of information about air operations. This will result in better flight on-time performance, cost savings and lower CO2 emissions. 

In recent years, Indra has strengthened its relationship as UkSATSE's technology provider. Besides having equipped various control centres and airports with its system, Indra has deployed air surveillance radar in both Simferopol and Dnipropetrovsk. In addition, Indra has equipped Donetsk airport with surface radar that allows it to operate in adverse weather and with low visibility. 

Indra is a leading supplier of Air Traffic Management (ATM) systems. With over 90 years of experience, it has completed more than 3,000 installations in more than 140 countries. In Europe, it is one of the most important companies in the SESAR R&D project, the technology pillar supporting creation of the future single sky on the continent. It also partners with the main navigation service providers such as AENA (Spain), NATS (UK), DFS (Germany), LVNL (Netherlands), among others.
