[Avionics Today May 7, 2014] The landlocked South African country of Zambia has selected the Thales TopSky-ATC system to modernize its Air Traffic Management (ATM) system nationwide. Zambia will receive a solution configured with two primary radars and two secondary surveillance radars equipped with full Mode S.
TopSky will manage Zambia's entire airspace, according to Thales. Zambia joins several other African countries, including Namibia and the Democratic Republic of Congo to upgrade their ATM with TopSky.
According to Thales, 70 percent of African Air Traffic Control (ATC) centers are currently equipped with TopSky.
