Era a.s., of Fairfax, Va., said Friday it will provide nationwide wide area multilateration (WAM) system for the Republic of Tajikistan. The company signed a contract with Tajikaeronavigation, the country’s air navigation service provider.

The nationwide WAM solution will be deployed in three phases. The first phase, which will begin immediately, includes WAM surveillance for the northern portion of the country and will provide air traffic controllers with situation awareness of en route traffic in the Khujand portion of the Dushanbe flight information region as well as the approach surveillance for the Khujand International Airport. The second and third phases will include surveillance for the south and central areas of the nation and surveillance for the eastern portion, respectively.

“After an extensive evaluation period where we looked at surveillance technologies from around the world, we ultimately chose Era’s next generation multilateration and ADS-B surveillance solution for our secondary surveillance needs,” said Tajikaeronavigation General Director Anvar Makhsudov. “Era’s reputation for excellence and impressive track-record of deploying WAM solutions in areas of difficult terrain were key factors in selecting them for this project.”
