21st June 2011 - 07:20 GMT | by The Shephard News Team


Raytheon Company has been selected to supply Mode S Monopulse Secondary Surveillance Radar (MSSR) systems to the Romanian Air Traffic Services Administration, ROMATSA. Under the contract, signed in Bucharest, Raytheon UK will provide dual-channel, Condor Series 300 systems for the en route radar sites at Romania's Henri Coanda (Otopeni) International Airport, Constanta International Airport and Arad International Airport during a 20-month program.

"In order to meet European Union requirements regarding air safety, quality and security, ROMATSA will install Mode S MSSR systems produced by Raytheon, for the first time on the Romanian territory," said Adrian Remus Serban, operations director, ROMATSA. "Taking into consideration the tradition of this company and the quality of their equipment, we are convinced that these modern radar systems will live up to our expectations."

Richard Daniel, Raytheon UK director, Defence and Program Leadership, said: "This is a significant win for Raytheon since ROMATSA is a new customer for us. We look forward to establishing an enduring relationship with ROMATSA as we roll out these systems and extend our services further in Eastern Europe."

The first system, for Otopeni, completed Factory Acceptance Test in May and is scheduled for hand over to ROMATSA by November 2011.

Since implementation of the world's first operational Mode S MSSR system in 1996, Raytheon has maintained a position as a global leader, with its systems being renowned for reliability and ease of operation. With 215 Mode S systems deployed internationally, including 57 in Europe, during the course of the last 18 months Raytheon has introduced the technology for several customers in the Middle East and Central America.
