Contract Awarded To Northrop Grumman For Normarc 7000B
The African air navigation safety agency Agence pour la
Securite de la Navigation Aerienne en Afrique et a Madagascar
(ASECNA) has awarded a multi-million dollar contract to Northrop
Grumman Corporation's Europe-based air traffic management
subsidiary, Northrop Grumman Park Air Systems, for a continent-wide
upgrade and renewal of their instrument landing systems.
Northrop Grumman Park Air Systems proposed their Normarc 7000B
instrument landing system (ILS) in an international RFP. ASECNA has
a large number of Normarc 7000 ILS already in service throughout
the continent. The ILS will be installed and commissioned by French
partner company GTIE Air & Defense of the Vinci Group on a
turnkey basis. The systems will be installed and commissioned over
a five-year period at 13 different airports and sites in
"We look forward to continuing our working relationship with
ASECNA and to upgrading the instrument landing systems across
Africa," said Eldar Hauge, managing director of Northrop Grumman
Park Air Systems in Norway.
The Normarc 7000 ILS was developed in 1995 and has since gone
through several updates and upgrades. The 7000B ILS is the latest
generation of the company's ILS products.
