Inverness Airport, an international airport in northern Scotland, recently went operational with its InNOVA Approach and Tower display surveillance data processing system. Indra Navia, Indra’s Norwegian subsidiary, managed to install the system less than three months after being awarded the contract by Highlands and Islands Airports (HIAL). HIAL is a public corporation operating and managing 11 airports in Scotland, UK.
“We have been working closely with Indra Navia to implement this upgrade to our Inverness air traffic control operations. HIAL continues to invest in major infrastructural upgrades of its Communications, Navigation and Surveillance systems as it continues to develop its long-term ATM 2030 air traffic management strategy,” said Pat Nolan, General Manager Air Traffic Services at HIAL.
The project included the installation of InNOVA Approach and Tower display for two approach positions, one tower position, a duplicated screen and a technical position used for maintenance and control. In addition, the project included safety nets for short-term conflict alert, minimum safe altitude warning, airspace proximity warning and final approach.
“We are proud to demonstrate our ability to deliver complex solutions time efficiently. It has been a pleasure to cooperate with HIAL and Inverness Airport on this project”, comments Elin Blakstad, Director of Tower, Indra Navia.
