Thales to equip Cibao International Airport in Dominican Republic with new air traffic control radar system


Instituto Dominicano de Aviación Civil, the Dominican Republic air services navigation provider awards a contract to Thales for a fifth Air Traffic Control Radar, a co-mounted ​ STAR NG (Primary Surveillance Radar) and RSM NG (Secondary Surveillance Radar) for installation at the Cibao International Airport.

Safe skies means safe transit through a number of given airspaces. It means that, at any given point in time, Air Traffic Control Operators (ATCO) must be aware of aircrafts’ position in their airspace to deliver efficient Air Traffic Management (ATM). Surveillance solutions are the “Eyes” of the ATCO. It means relying on a wide network of ground sensors enabling such coordination so that safety and punctuality can go hand-in-hand. It also means the detection capacity of non-cooperative aircrafts, playing a major role in air surveillance.

The co-mounted air traffic radar system ​ – STAR NG (Primary Surveillance Radar) and the latest RSM NG (Secondary Surveillance Radar) represent the latest in technical excellence, offering the highest levels of detection performance, reliability, and cybersecurity to meet IDAC’ surveillance needs and ​ ensure passenger safety. ​
