CentrAm taps Thales precision tech 

Thales has received a contract from the Corporacion Centroamericana de Servicio de Navegacion Aerea (COCESNA) to provide two Instrument Landing Systems with Distance Measuring Equipment (ILS/DME) for La Aurora International Airport, Guatemala, and El Salvador International Airport, El Salvador.
This contract is an extension of Thales’s strong, multi-year relationship with COCESNA – the air navigation service provider for six Central American countries – in providing navigation, ADS-B surveillance and automation solutions for Central America.
The ILS system aids pilots in approach and landing, especially under poor weather and visibility conditions, by providing information to enable guidance during descent. It also provides deviation information from a defined approach path down to and along the runway surface. DME
