Air Traffic and Navigation Services SOC Limited (ATNS) has selected Thales to supply, install and commission Wide Area Multilateration (WAM) surveillance, Primary and Secondary Surveillance Radars, and Distance Measuring Equipment (DME).

Thales will be supplying the technology to a number of sites across South Africa, as part of the countries efforts to modernise navigation and surveillance, and improve safety and efficiency.
 
“ATNS has invested in the acquisition of new and advanced technology for Air Traffic Management to replace the current national Air Traffic Management Automation system. Through this programme, ATNS will enter a new era of operational technology advancements for the benefit of the ATM community,” said Thabani Mthiyane, CEO, ATNS.
 
By utilising these technologies, ATNS will be able to provide RNAV routes for faster and shorter trajectories, lower fuel consumption, and reduced carbon emissions.
 
The contract will also provide ATNS with support and maintenance.
