The project supported upgrade and modernization of the instrumental landing system of Manas Airport, procurement and upgrade of aviation equipment, fire engines, special ground equipment, aviation safety equipment, upgrade of VHF omnidirectional
range and distance measuring equipment, other equipment valued at more than 1 billion yens or 629 million soms ($13.527 million).
Systems Interface, based in the UK, has been awarded a contract by the Tunisian Civil Aviation and Airports Authority (OACA) to supply VORs (VHF Omnidirectional
range) Beacons, DMEs (UHF Distance Measuring Equipment) and a DVOR (Doppler VHF Omnidirectional
range) beacon following a competitive Tender.
Honeywell's Integrated Multi-Mode Receiver (IMMR) is designed to meet today's more accurate, satellite-based navigation requirements through its integration of multiple technologies, such as localizer and VHF omnidirectional
receivers, with next-generation technologies like GNSS landing systems into one receiver.
CAAP has signed a contract for the replacement of the old Doppler VHF Omnidirectional
Range (DVOR) and Distance Measuring Equipment (DME) at the said airport with the supply, installation and commissioning contract being awarded to Indra Australia Pty.
But Budiongan said the new airport would soon be able to take in flights or send one even if it was pitchdark, with the installation of the ILS and other pieces of equipment, including a VHF omnidirectional
radio range (VOR); the Distance Measuring Equipment (DME); the Meteorological Observing System; Precision Approach Lighting SystemCategory 1; and the Precision Approach Path Indicator.
Thales's Doppler-VOR VHF Omnidirectional
Radio Range system is particularly well suited to operatingunder demanding conditions and terrain.
Rockwell Collins is also providing navigation system components consisting of the ADF-900 Automatic Direction Finder, DME-2100 Distance Measuring Equipment and the VOR-900 VHF Omnidirectional
Furthermore, the company's VHF omnidirectional
radio range (VOR) and DME will provide navigation equipment for various airports, for both en-route and terminal area guidance.
Emirates also selected the following sensors: ADF-900 Automatic Direction Finder, DME-900 Distance Measuring Equipment, HFS-900D High Speed Data Radio, VHF-2100 Very High Frequency Transceiver, CPL-920D Coupling Unit, and VOR-900 VHF Omnidirectional
Radio, the statement said.
Other equipment that Rockwell Collins will be providing includes: Communication Management Units, Satellite Communications Systems, VHF and HF transceivers, VHF Omnidirectional
Radio, Distance Measuring Equipment, Automatic Direction Finders, Multi Mode Receivers, Mode S Transponders, Cockpit Voice Recorders, Flight Data Recorders, Emergency Locator Transmitters, Flight Deck Printers and the Data Management Units.
A host of radio-based approaches such as Omega, Loran-C, the VHF Omnidirectional
Range, TACAN and the Air Traffic Control Radar Beacon System, all loosely based on various DF schemes, have come into being.
range (VOR) equipment and distance measuring equipment (DME) will also be provided to allow an increase in the number of domestic flights through high-precision flight techniques to destination airports.
