Indra Navia AS
Technology you can trust
Indra Navia has an enviable position in the navigation market. The company’s NORMARC 7000 ILS has been an industry benchmark for more than 30 years, and provides precision guidance at nearly 1,000 airports around the world.
The company’s latest fourth-generation ILS is known
for its reliability and signal accuracy, with success at major international hubs as well as regional sites. The technology accounts for 90 per cent of China’s ILS installations, and nearly all purchases made in the Middle East over the last two years have opted for the NORMARC system.
“Indra Navia can justifiably say it is the world’s expert in landing aircraft”, says Eldar Hauge, Managing Director. “There is continuous process of bringing our product to new levels. Our discriminators are equipmment reliablity and support from the organisation. The requirement for support is not often, but when it happens we respond very quickly and we solve the problem.” Significantly, Indra Navia is already a leader in satellite-based systems, with the world’s first operational satellite landing system (SLS) in service with Norwegian customer Avinor since late 2007. “We intend to remain a leading navigation provider, and we continue to develop with the market,” explains Hauge. “When the market moves from ground-based to space-based we will carry our strong navigation name with us, unlike new players who are coming onboard now”.
Systems integration is fundamental to future growth
Indra Navia has delivered a number of systems integration projects, and is becoming more active in this market. With the NOVA 9000 Air Traffic Guidance and Control Systems, the company has led the development of surface movement guidance and control at airfields and supports approach, and area control operations. Many of the world’s busiest airports rely on NOVA technology to provide safe and efficient routing of air traffic.
The sound connection
Indra Navia’s GAREX 220 VCCS platform integrates radio and telephone resources used by air traffic controllers to communicate with aircraft and neighboring air traffic control centers.
The GAREX 220 VCCS is the core of the nationwide network in use by NATS in the UK and under delivery to LVNL in The Netherlands. The GAREX 220 VCCS communications platform has been adapted to address a wider set of users and provide a more standardised product. This will enable customers who require smaller systems to get the same functionality as the bigger installations, at a competitive price. There will be fewer configuration requirements and customers can start small and grow the system to suit their requirements.
