Indra to modernise Spanish IFF systems
Indra has been selected to modernise the IFF systems used by Spanish Army air surveillance squadrons (EVA) in order to adapt them to the latest NATO standard.
The contract will cover a three-and-a-half-year period from 2020 until 2023 and will also include logistical support services for the EVA and the Transmissions Logistics Centre (CLOTRA).
The system is comprised of Lanza 3D radars which are capable of interrogating aircraft within a maximum range of 470km and can provide information exchanges with civilian air traffic control operators.
The new upgrades will integrate Mode 5 (encrypted), Mode S and ADS-B capacity throughout the Spanish mainland, which also forms NATO’s southwestern flank. All radar tenders offered by NATO have been secured by Indra over the last five years.
Indra has sold more than 50 Lanza 3D radars to countries across five continents since production of the system began.
