Indra has won a contract to supply a system of secondary radar and upgrade HF communications system for the Papua New Guinea Navigation Service Corporation.
The catalog price of these systems is around 16 million euros. The new secondary radio will be installed in the vicinity of the capital Port Moresby, replacing the one used by the corporation until now, the company said in a statement Thursday.
The company will also install a new dual high-frequency radio station in Nadzab to improve the clarity and scope of airspace communications.
This technology will allow PNG to significantly reinforce security in its airspace and improve the efficiency of the service it provides to the airlines.
The project is part of an infrastructure modernization program in PNG. The contract awarded to Indra will be financed by the Asian Development Bank and managed by the Civil Aviation and Development Infrastructures Program in partnership with PNG.
