(Rome, May 6, 2010) -- SELEX Sistemi Integrati, a Finmeccanica company, has become the first air traffic control systems supplier in China following a further contract the company has recently signed with the Civil Aviation Administration of China (CAAC). The 9 million dollar supply refers to the installation of six mode S secondary radars.
With the new contract, SELEX Sistemi Integrati, which in the last twenty years has sold several air traffic radar systems in China, will equip a total of 50 airports deputed to manage about 50% of the Chinese air traffic.
The systems will be located in six different sites belonging to three out of the seven Flight Information Regions (FIR) in which the Chinese territory is divided. In particular, four out of the six sensors sold will be located in the North East flight region in the sites of Lonjing, Youyi, Shuangcheng and Huangshanzi, one in Guilin in the Central South region and another one in the North West at Muzhailing.
The new supply will be integrated with the four primary radars, one in L and three in S band all equipped with solid state technology, and four second S mode radars, which the company sold to the same customer last March. The contract represents an immediate reconfirm of the trust in SELEX Sistemi Integrati's systems by the Civil Aviation Administration of China which also visited the company premises in Rome recently.
