NEC has bagged a $9.8 million (one billion yen) order from the Civil Aviation Authority of Nepal for modernizing Tribhuvan International Airport in Kathmandu.
As per the order, NEC will supply air traffic control radar system, a secondary surveillance radar that receives detailed operating information from airplanes and a multi-sensor information processing system that utilizes information received from radars by March 2015.
This will contribute to improving the reliability and efficiency of air traffic control services in Nepal while helping to ensure smooth and secure airport operations.
NEC has provided air traffic control solutions including systems for sophisticated transportation hubs in Japan, South Korea, Taiwan and the Philippines.
Tribhuvan International Airport is already using Official Development Assistance (ODA) from Japan to update airport equipment, such as aging surveillance radars and data processing systems to address the rising number of passenger flights in Nepal.
