Finmeccanica – Selex ES was awarded a multi-million Euro contract to enhance air traffic control (ATC) surveillance at Singapore’s Changi Airport. The contract involves the design, delivery, commissioning and after sales support services for a new approach surveillance radar system, which is scheduled to be operational by 2017. The currently operational approach surveillance radar system, which will be replaced under the contract, was also designed and delivered by Selex ES.
Selex ES was awarded the contract by the Civil Aviation Authority of Singapore (CAAS) after an open public tender which involved tough competition among several companies. Selex ES’s world-class radar technology and its track record of quality and performance provided assurance that the company would be able to undertake and deliver on this challenging project, which involves technological complexity, modern requirements and a tight execution timeframe.
Selex ES is a major international player in the provision of large-scale, complex solutions for Air Traffic Management (ATM) systems. Over the past half century, the company has delivered more than a thousand primary and secondary radar channels in more than 150 countries, providing air traffic controllers with innovative, proprietary technology solutions based on efficiency, safety, performance, and environmental sustainability.
Selex ES is proud to have been awarded this contract in competition against a pool of international providers, attesting to its capabilities in ATC technology and serving to elevate its brand globally.
