Airports Authority Of India Inks ₹945 Cr Deal With US Firm To Secure Data, Manage Air Traffic


In order to secure data of airports and efficiently manage air traffic, the Airports Authority of India (AAI) on Thursday signed a Rs945 crore contract with a US-based technology firm. The 15-year contract with Harris Corporation was signed in the presence of officials of the civil aviation ministry and Directorate General of Civil Aviation (DGCA) during the sixth edition of the bi-annual US-India Aviation Summit.

The contract involves developing futuristic telecommunications programme that can prevent situations such as the one in April 2016 when multiple radars, which monitor flight movements beyond 200 nautical miles, and an important VHF-radio link went off at the Kolkata airport due to a glitch in the BSNL network, which affected air traffic.

Senior officials said the new system will play a key role in deployment of remote towers for managing air traffic services at airports under the central government’s Regional Connectivity Scheme. Read More…
