Saab to Provide Wide Area Multilateration Systems at Cucuta and Medellin in Colombia

Defence and security company Saab announces that it has been awarded a contract to deploy Wide Area Multilateration (WAM) surveillance systems around the cities of Cucuta and Medellin for Aeronáutica Civil de Colombia (Aerocivil).

Saab will be working with its local Colombian partner, Entelcom S.A.S., to install an array of its latest multilateration and ADS-B ground stations to provide surveillance of the Cucuta and Medellin approach sectors. ADS-B is the next generation of aircraft surveillance, which utilizes global navigation satellite systems to track aircraft positions. Saab’s system will improve the safety of flights operating in the visual corridor between Enrique Olaya Herrera Airport (SKMD) and José María Córdova International Airport (SKRG). Saab’s field-proven technology provides coverage in areas that are infeasible to reach with traditional radar.

“Saab’s multilateration and ADS-B solutions provide air navigation service providers like Aerocivil with the critical surveillance they need while costing much less than radar-based solutions” explains Anders Carp, Head of Saab Traffic Management.
