NATS, the UK’s foremost provider of air traffic services, has signed a contract to supply an advanced 10 position Radar Data Processing and Display System to TAG Farnborough Airport, Europe’s leading business aviation facility and home to the Farnborough International Airshow.
Iain Harris, Engineering Director at NATS, said: “We are very pleased to continue our long standing relationship with TAG Farnborough Airport, with this contract closely following the upgrade to the Emergency Voice Communications System, which NATS was involved in just last year.”
Roger Walker, Director Airport Operations, TAG Farnborough Airport, said: “We are committed to utilising the best available technology and working with partners such as NATS to ensure that we operate the airport efficiently and to the highest standards. This new system will be fully operational by summer 2014, in time for the Farnborough International Airshow, when we will have the privilege of showcasing the airport to a worldwide audience.”
Under this contract, NATS will provide programme and engineering management, system configuration and safety case capabilities, ensuring that the system is active in early 2014 in order to meet all operational requirements.
NATS has contracted technology company, Indra Navia, for the supply of the system following recent successful contracts at Humberside, Birmingham and Manchester airports.
