Thales won a contract with Belgium to supply of STAR 2000/RSM 970 S co-mounted radars to replace approach radars. The new systems will be installed initially at Brussels National and Ostend airports, and at Charleroi at a later date.
The STAR 2000 and MSSR RSM 970 S solid state radars will transmit data to CANAC² (Computer Assisted National Air Traffic Control Centre 2), an air traffic control center that opened earlier this year. The central element of this system is Thales’s EUROCAT product.
Thales will also provide complete support for a period of 12 years, including technical assistance, software maintenance, repairs to electronic components and mechanical maintenance.
