Thales has been selected to provide air traffic control systems for Mexico’s air navigation service provider SENEAM, the company said Monday.

Under the terms of the contract, Thales will provide its Instrumental Landing System (ILS) associated with Distance Measuring Equipment (DME) and VHF Omnidirectional Radio Range (VOR) and Distance Measuring Equipment (DME). These VOR/DME systems will be used for both en-route and terminal area guidance.

As part of this contract, industrial partner Amfar will ensure all necessary civil works, equipment installation, training and all other logistical activities. Production of the systems will be completed in the next couple of months at the Thales Milan (Gorgonzola) site in Italy and will be delivered to SENEAM early next year.

”We are proud to have been again selected to help SENEAM provide the highest level of safety for the Mexican airspace. Thales was already selected in 2010 to supply 4 ILS/VOR and 7 VORDME systems to SENEAM and this new contract confirms SENEAM’s confidence in Thales systems,” said Vaclav Sourek, director of sales of the Air Systems Division in Germany.
