Indra was honored with NAV CANADA’s Supplier Excellence Award 14 times between 2000 and 2016.

Through this contract, Indra will install its InNOVA ground surveillance system at Ottawa, Quebec, Winnipeg, Halifax and St. John’s airports in Canada. A similar system will also be used for training purposes at NAV CANADA’s training facility, the NAV CENTRE, in Cornwall, Ontario. Additionally, a duplicate will be installed at their Technical Services facility (TSC), in Ottawa, Ontario, allowing NAV CANADA’s technical experts to test, validate and provide user support across the nation from a centralized location.

The delivery includes the installation of a Runway Incursion Monitoring and Conflict Alerting System (RIMCAS). This system improves ground safety and is documented to have avoided incidents at other airports around the world. With the new ground surveillance system, NAV CANADA gets the flexibility of adding advanced and automated functionalities to meet future needs.

Warren Gosselin, Director CNS Solutions, NAV CANADA, said:

“The contract continues a successful relationship with Indra who we have worked with for more than 20 years. Throughout this relationship their support and ability to adjust to our needs has been excellent, their solutions are very reliable and are adapted to meet our needs.”
