Thales will provide radar stations for three airports in Belarus, under a contract awarded by the country's air navigation services provider, Belaeronavigatsia.
Thales said it will work with its Belarusian partner AGAT to deliver and install radar stations for Grodno, Mogilev and Minsk-2 airports. Under this contract, Thales will provide two sets of co-mounted STAR 2000 primary radars and RSM 970 S secondary radars, which will be deployed at the Grodno and Minsk-2 airports. One additional RSM 970 S secondary radar will be located at the Mogilev airport.
The STAR 2000 and RSM 970 S radars will be manufactured in Rouen in France. These Mode S-compliant radars are designed to enhance situation awareness for the air traffic controller, according to Thales.
“We are investing in what we believe is the most advanced technology available on the market today,” said Leonid Churo, DG Belaeronavigatsia. “The new radar systems are fully compliant with International Standards and will further strengthen the safety of the Belarussian airspace."
