Park Air Systems Radar Coming To Jersey Airport
Northrop Grumman Corporation announced last week its
Europe-based air traffic management system subsidiary, Northrop
Grumman Park Air Systems, has been awarded a contract by NATS
Services Ltd. to supply, deliver and install its NOVA 9000 Radar
Processing and Flight Planning System, with fully integrated
electronic flight strips, to the new air traffic control tower at
Jersey International Airport.
"Our integrated air traffic management system will help
controllers meet the demands for increased airspace capacity at
Jersey airport," said Eldar Hauge, managing director for Northrop
Grumman Park Air Systems Norway. "We are proud of our strong
partnership with NATS and delighted they have selected our product
as part of the tower fit-out for Jersey Airport."
NATS is working closely with the Jersey Airport Air Traffic
Engineering Department to fit-out the new control tower with the
latest in avionics and air traffic control technology. NATS
provides air traffic control services at 15 of the UK's largest
airports and en-route air traffic services for aircraft flying
through UK airspace.
Northrop Grumman Park Air Systems will supply a fully integrated
electronic flight strip system. The system will be the primary
operational ATC tool for approach and tower control at Jersey
International Airport. Each ATC working position will be equipped
with NOVA 9000 radar and electronic flight plan displays.
Northrop Grumman Park Air Systems, based in Peterborough, UK and
in Oslo and Horten, Norway, supplies communication, navigation and
surveillance systems for air-space operations worldwide.
