Indra is awarded a contract to modernize air surveillance radars in New Zealand

June 21 () –

Indra has signed a contract with Airways New Zealand, the New Zealand air navigation service provider, to modernize the country’s air surveillance radar network with cutting-edge technology.

This action will reinforce the safety of air traffic in the country with cutting-edge technology and will increase capacity while reducing CO2 emissions, according to a statement from the Spanish company.

As part of the agreement, Indra will build a new tower in Christchurch, a town in the south of the oceanic archipelago, where it will deploy a new primary (PSR3D) and secondary (MSSR) radar site throughout 2022.

In a second phase, radars will also be installed at Auckland and Wellington airports, after which the company will have renewed the country’s aerial surveillance network with six new installations.

Indra’s ATM Commercial Director, Enrique Castillo, highlighted that Airways New Zealand will have advanced technology to manage a greater volume of traffic while maximizing safety and reducing the environmental footprint.

The new radars incorporate the most advanced digital technologies to ensure a view of air movements with maximum precision and facilitate a much more efficient and safe management of flights.


Three-dimensional radars are a technology that offers maximum reliability when it comes to accurately detecting the aircraft without depending on the information that the ship sends or that its flight instruments are calibrated.

Among its advantages is that it allows aircraft to be detected both in adverse weather conditions or when there is interference.

Likewise, the installation will meet sustainability requirements that include reduced energy consumption and coexistence with solar or wind installations in its vicinity.

The project will take three years to complete and for its execution Indra will have the support of the local industry.
