Thales said Friday it has signed two contracts to supply and install primary and secondary radar systems at airports in Croatia.

Under terms of the contracts, which were signed in May and June but just announced Thursday, Thales will supply its STAR 2000/RSM 970 S radars at Zagreb international airport and for the equipment of the regional airports of Pula, Zadar, Split and Dubrovnik by deploying extensions of the EUROCAT Air Traffic Management (ATM) system from Zagreb operated since 2005.

The Thales STAR 2000 and co-mounted RSM 970 S Mode S MSSR radar equipment are solid-state radars that will feed data into the Thales EUROCAT Air Traffic Control center. EUROCAT is an air traffic management system designed to ensure safe and efficient operations for en-route, approach and airport movements.

Thales has supplied a total of 260 air traffic control centres worldwide, all designed to comply with international standards and meet customers' requirements for enhanced air traffic safety and security.

“We are proud to pursue our 30-year partnership with Croatia Control Ltd. and to help Croatia’s civil aviation community ensure that the safety of flying in the Croatian skies is continuously enhanced.” says Rémi Gille, Thales Vice President for ATM business.
