Indra to Supply Advanced Air Traffic Control Systems to FAA, Enhancing Airport Safety

In a landmark development for air traffic control technology, Indra has been chosen to supply its Surface Awareness Initiative (SAI) systems to the United States Federal Aviation Administration (FAA). The FAA, responsible for managing the country’s air traffic, has approved Indra’s innovative solution, AeroBOSS, to enhance situational awareness and reduce the risk of runway incursions that have been on the rise globally.

The SAI system, utilizing ADS-B surveillance technology and 5G networks, provides real-time data on aircraft positions and movements on airport surfaces. This critical information helps air traffic controllers to effectively monitor and manage airport operations, ultimately ensuring the safety of passengers and aircraft.

Indra has already completed the initial deployment of its SAI system at Dallas Love Field Airport in Texas, showcasing its advanced capabilities in automatic surface monitoring and cloud connectivity. The company anticipates widespread adoption of this cutting-edge technology at major and medium-sized airports across the United States in the near future.

In addition to the SAI system, Indra has also extended its exclusive agreement to supply Distance Measuring Equipment (DME) systems to the FAA. These systems play a crucial role in guiding aircraft during their approach to airports and along designated flight paths, further enhancing aviation safety.

By securing its position as a leader in aviation technology, Indra is poised to revolutionize air traffic management in the US market. With a commitment to innovation and efficiency, the company aims to make air travel safer, more efficient, and sustainable for passengers and airlines alike.

Indra’s comprehensive portfolio of next-generation solutions has earned it a reputation as a global leader in the aviation sector, with a track record of equipping over 11,000 air traffic facilities worldwide. The company’s dedication to ensuring the safety of millions of daily air travelers underscores its commitment to shaping the future of aviation technology.
