Lokpriya Gopinath Bordoloi airport to have new Radar system

Lokpriya Gopinath Bordoloi International Airport here will have a state-of-the-art surveillance air traffic control (ATC) Radar system covering almost the entire North Eastern sky, according to the Airports Authority of India.

The upcoming Radar system is part of the Airports Authority of India undertaking a project for replacing 20-year old Radar systems with the new state-of-the-art technology, said an AAI press release.

It is part of AAI's continuing endeavour for modernising Air Navigation Services (ANS) with new Radars, ADS-B (Automatic Dependent Surveillance-Broadcasting) equipment and ATS (Automation Tooling Systems) at various locations in the country, the release said.

The data from the new radar will be integrated with the INDRA ATS Automation system of the local Approach Control and Area Control Centers in Guwahati.

The same data will also be provided and integrated with other automation systems for providing satisfactory Radar coverage at the required redundancy levels over the North Eastern air space, it said.
