Indra to install a primary radar in South Korea to reinforce surveillance in the world's busiest air-traffic corridor

  • The new system will be installed seamlessly with the Mode S secondary radar implemented by the company in 2013
  • The Jeju-Seoul route saw traffic of over 10.4 million passengers in 2014, according to data from the International Air Transport Association
  • This new contract reinforces Indra's position in South Korea, where it is carrying out an ambitious project to modernize Incheon Airport

Indra has been awarded a contract to install one of its primary radars in South Korea to reinforce security and cover the surveillance of the busiest air traffic corridor in the world in terms of number of passengers: the route between Jeju and Seoul.

In 2013, the company was awarded a contract to install one of its Mode S secondary radars in the vicinity of Jeju airport. This is a system with state-of-the-art technology for identifying aircraft and obtaining data on their height and flying speed. Now the company is reinforcing this site with the installation of a new primary radar that detects the position of any aircraft, whether or not it actively identifies itself.


Indra thus enhances the surveillance of this route which, according to data from the International Air Transport Association (IATA), recorded the largest number of passengers worldwide in 2014. Specifically, 10.5 million passengers used the route, up 10.9% from the previous year.

Indra was awarded the contract after winning the open tender against some of the leading systems suppliers in the world, in consortium with local companies. With this new award, Indra reinforces its already solid position in South Korea.

In 2015 Indra won several contracts for the supply of systems for navigation, surveillance and automated air traffic management systems for the Incheon International Airport in Seoul. This is one of the leading airports in Asia, handling 45 million passengers in 2014.

Outside Korea, Indra has a strong position in the Asian market. 60% of Chinese airspace is currently monitored with Indra radars, and its automation systems allow the control centers in Xi'an and Chengdu to manage airspace of 4.2 million km2, more than eight times the skies over Spain. The company has also deployed almost 800 radio navigation systems (DVOR, ILS, DME) in different sites around the country. Elsewhere, it has developed important ATM projects in countries such as Mongolia, Vietnam, the Philippines, Indonesia and Australia, among others.

Indra has successfully completed more than 4,000 air traffic management installations in 160 countries. The company is also one of the leaders of the SESAR R&D program, which defines the future requirements for Air Traffic Management in Europe.
