Indra has bagged an order from the Ministry of Defence of South Korea for supply and implementation of air traffic surveillance and management systems to reinforce safety and control of air operations at Korea’s main Air Force bases.
This is the first order placed by the Republic of South Korea Air Force (ROKAF) with Indra.
Indra won the tender in the face of competition with the main defence and air traffic companies from USA and rest of the world. The systems, to be delivered over four years, will help manage aircraft movements and improve the efficiency of the Air Force’s missions.
Indra will provide S-band primary radars, equipped with multiple modes of operation, which incorporate electronic counter-countermeasures (ECCM) based on frequency agility techniques.
Indra will work on this project together with Korean companies with the aim of ensuring workload for the local industry.
Indra also undertook the modernization of the systems that today manage and monitor air traffic in Seoul in 2018 and a few years earlier, the company had already implemented its radars at Jeju Island’s airport to strengthen the safety of some of the busiest routes in the country and around the world.
Indra has already modernized air traffic management in China, Mongolia, Vietnam or Indonesia and successfully commercialized its pilot training simulators in Malaysia and China.
The company has also supplied 3D defence radars to Thailand and other Pacific countries such as Australia.
