Indra has acquired new contracts for deploying its radar surveillance systems in China. The company will implement 5 systems to reinforce control of the Shanghai air space, providing surveillance services to the East China Region.
Likewise, the company will also deploy one surveillance systems in the middle south region and one more in Yinchuan and will expand the en-route control center in Xian. The global value of these contracts is approximately USD11 million.
Indra already has 30 Secondary Radars in operation in this country deployed during the last 8 years, which currently control approximately 60% of the Chinese sky.
Now, East China Air Traffic Management Bureau (ATMB), one of the seven regions into which the ATMB of the Civil Aviation Administration of China (CAAC) is divided, has entrusted Indra the implementation of another five secondary Mode S radars, the most advanced aircraft identification technology. These systems will reinforce control of the East China sky, improving traffic flow that flies in this region.
Indra, overseen by Chairman Fernando Abril-Martorell, is one of the leading multinational consulting and technology firms in Europe and Latin America, and it is currently expanding in other emerging economy regions. Innovation represents the cornerstone of its highly client-oriented business and sustainability.
In the last three years it has spent 583 million euro on R and D, making it one of the biggest European investors in its sector. With nearly 3 billion euro in revenues, it has 43,000 employees and customers in over 148 countries.
