The challenge

The challenge

Dubai Airports owns and manages the operation and development of Dubai International as well as Dubai World Central – Al Maktoum International and their Mission is to create world-leading airports to enhance the prosperity and global standing of the Emirate of Dubai. They also understand that reliable, flexible and scalable solutions makes it possible to not only improve capacity and increase passenger safety, but also to reduce maintenance costs and attract new airlines to improve profitability.

Coinciding with the building and opening of the Sheik Rashid Terminal in 2000, Dubai Airport entered into a new era of aviation history in the UAE. Major upgrades and new development programs were launched. Only a scalable, reliable, state-of-the-art ATC system would do.

Case solution

Indra Navia assisted the Dubai Airports in establishing a reliable Instrument Landing System (ILS) capability, which supported the growth expectations of the company. Dubai Airports recently launched a tender to replace the existing NORMARC 7000 Instrument Landing Systems with newer technology which assist in optimizing traffic flow around the airport due to the A380 fleet which will be delivered to Dubai over the next years. Through a tender competition, Indra Navia won the contract to supply a new NORMARC 7000 Instrument Landing Systems.

In addition, advanced technologies in voice communication and airport surveillance which support Dubai Airport’s operations are also supplied by Indra Navia. Dubai Airport is in a constant change with expansions and new developments ongoing all the time. Indra’€™s NOVA 9000 Airport Surveillance System and GAREX 220 Voice Communication System were already major parts of Dubai’€™s ATC solutions.
