Indra improves navigational safety at 37 airports in India


Indra has been awarded a contract for the supply of navigational aids to 37 of India’s military airfields. The contract is part of the ongoing Modernization of Air Field Infrastructure (MAFI) project by the Ministry of Defense.

The modernization of India’s airfields started in 2011 with Indra supplying navigational aids to 30 airfields. With the new contract Indra will deliver an additional 24 instrument landing systems (ILS) and 29 guidance systems (DVOR) during a project period of three years. The company has also supplied navigational aids to most of the country’s civil airports, making Indra a major contributor to flight safety for air traffic in India.

The instrument landing system (ILS) guides aircraft safely to the runway by transmitting ground-based radio signals. The DVOR system supports air navigation by providing pilots with the exact location of the aircraft relative to a position on the ground.

Indra’s Normarc landing and guidance systems are known to be the most reliable systems in the market, having ensured safe landings for several hundred millions flights at 1400 airports worldwide.

Indra holds a strong leadership position in India and has, with Airports Authority of India (AAI), modernized some of the main control centers and towers of the country, deployed a radar network that covers 80% of its airspace and implemented nearly a 100 landing systems in different airports in the last decade.
