India Upgrading Civil Radar in Northeast

Airports Authority of India is installing new surveillance radars at the primary international airport in the country’s northeast.

The installation is a part of an ongoing initiative to modernize India’s air navigation services with new radars, ADS-B equipment and air traffic service automation systems at various locations throughout the country, according to the authority.
Built by ELDIS of Pardubice, Czech Republic, under a 2014 contract, the RL-2000 primary surveillance radars and collocated MSSR-1 monopulse secondary surveillance radar (with the Mode S capability) are to be installed at Lokpriya Gopinath Bordoloi International Airport in Guwahati in the northeast state of Assam. The airport lies along the Brahmaputra River in a section of Assam sandwiched between Bangladesh and Bhutan. To the east, Assam borders Myanmar.
