Indra has signed a contract with the Central American Corporation for Air Navigation Services (COCESNA) to modernize the approach control center and control tower at Philip Goldson International Airport in Belize, as well as to renovate its surveillance radar for more than four million dollars.
Modernization of these systems includes deployment of an advanced flight information center to manage traffic flows at all of the country’s airports, as well as implementing pilot messaging systems (AFTN/AIM) and analog and digital voice recording systems.
The control center will feature advanced billing systems, to help Belize Civil Aviation to bill for services provided to airlines. Indra will also equip air traffic controller positions with an electronic flight strips system, replacing the traditional paper system.
