The Airports Authority of India (AAI) has requested Indra to modernize Delhi's air control center, one of the most important centers in the country, which manages one of the busiest air traffic areas in India including operations in Indira Gandhi international airport (New Delhi).
Indra has also recently completed and handed over the Calcutta control center to AAI. This center is already using the company's technology to manage the routes from Southeastern Asia.
The multinational will now provide 140 controller positions and an advanced automated air traffic management system for Delhi's approach and route center. This system will enable operators to benefit from an integrated view of all aircraft movements in the airspace under their responsibility. It will also detect potential route conflicts and calculate possible alternatives in advance. Additionally, it will expedite coordination with other control centers and facilitate communication with pilots.
Thanks to this new contract, two of the four air control centers managing India's en-route traffic will use Indra's technology. The company has deployed its air traffic systems in more than 3,000 installations in 140 countries.
Indra has been working closely with AAI since 2010, when this authority chose Indra to deploy nine mode S radars, which now control around 80% of the country's airspace. This enterprise also selected the Spanish multinational to implement automated air traffic management systems in 38 airports.
