Thales has won a Euro 185 million contract from the Bolivian Ministry of Defence for integrated air defence and civil air traffic management (ATM), in Bolivia at a ceremony held today at the Elysee Palace in Paris. Under this contract launched by the Bolivia, Thales will deploy its civil and air defence radars and automation systems to modernise and integrate Bolivias air defence and civil ATM operations, the company announced today. Thales will supply a total of thirteen radars across twelve sites, including four air defence radars, one Star2000 primary surveillance radar, two TRAC approach radars and six RSM970 secondary radars. The radars will form the backbone of the surveillance infrastructure and will be integrated into a new purpose built air traffic control centre complex. The centre will house the TopSky-ATC, the most advanced ATM system in the world, to deliver advanced air traffic management operations, and the SkyView air C4I system, to deliver a single integrated air picture and common situation awareness for defence air operations. The 2,500 square meter complex will be built over the coming months and is due for completion in 2017 when the new system will become operational.
