Indra wins Jordan ATM contract

Indra has won a contract to implement radar surveillance and air traffic management systems in Jordan.
The contract awarded by the Civil Aviation Regulatory Commission (CARC) of the country, amounts to €4M.
This new win reinforces the company´s position in ATM in the Middle East as it comes on top recent contracts awarded in Oman and Kuwait. The latest contracts won in this region exceeds €100 million which clearly shows a strong market penetration.
Indra will implement a secondary radar system in order to enhance air space control.
The company will also equip Amman´s control centre with its air traffic management automation system. This technology combines the radar system information with that of the flight plans so that air traffic controllers receive an accurate picture of what is going on in their area.
The system also detects possible conflicts among the routes of the aircraft quite in advance so that the operator can make a decision. This way, security levels are increased and the delays due to these factors are reduced.
The Middle East and the Gulf are strategic sites for the company as the economies of some countries are growing fast as well as the demand of technology to modernize their infrastructure.
