Indra concludes modernisation of Brazilian Air Force air traffic radars that help control movements in the country’s sky
Indra, a leading global technology engineering company for the aerospace, defence and mobility sectors, has successfully concluded the modernisation project for two IRS 20-MP/S secondary transportable radars for the Brazilian Air Force, also supplied by the company, which help control movements in the country’s airspace and have the capacity to replace air surveillance radars in the event of long interruptions in their operation and keep the overall availability of the surveillance service for General Air Traffic high.
The radars are the responsibility of the Rio de Janeiro Air Force Electronics Materiel Facility (PAME-RJ), under the coordination of the Radiofinding Subdivision (RAD) of the Technical Division. The conclusion of the project took place by means of site acceptance tests (SAT) of the modernization process—electronic, electrical, and mechanical/structural—of the two secondary transportable radar units. One of the sets of equipment is installed in Petrolina, state of Pernambuco, and the other will be installed in Bom Jesus da Lapa, in Bahia.
