Indra to provide air traffic management technology to HAL in India

Indian state-owned Hindustan Aeronautics Limited (HAL) has selected Indra to equip HAL Airport in Bengaluru with Indra Air Traffic Control technology to strengthen safety of air operations.

Indra will provide HAL air traffic control centre with last-generation en-route, approach and tower control positions that will enable and boost air traffic management efficiency.

The contract also includes provision of a simulator to reinforce controllers’ training, voice recorder, surveillance ADS-B, and Aeronautical Information System AIS/ASBS and D-ATIS. It also includes customer personnel training, warranty and four-year maintenance.

Indra air traffic control system is in operation in 38 airports across India and also supplying one of the main air traffic control centres in India, Kolkata ATCC, key centre for the routes towards southwest Asia. Indra has also deployed a network of radars that cover 80 per cent of Indian Airspace.

Last year, the Indian Government announced it will build additional 100 airports during the next 10 to 15 years.

Indra said all this consolidates India position as one of the most “attractive and dynamic markets in the world” as a technological supplier, as India needs to reinforce its air traffic management infrastructure.
