To support the day-to-day operations of Athens International Airport, a Radar Data Distribution System (RDDS) and Advanced Surface Movement Guidance and Control System (ASMGCS) provide real-time information on aircraft movements via remote data displays to the staff in the ASOC. This information provides enhanced situational awareness to allow staff to deliver the best operational efficiency.
At the Airport, Cyrrus identified the ageing EVCS as one of the top priorities for replacement. The requirement to meet Civil Aviation Authority 8.33kHz regulations and provision of new radios provided an opportunity to undertake a full Emergency communications project.
A Council led development, close to Norwich Airport, had the potential to cause unacceptable performance loss to the existing primary radar. Due of the age of the equipment, relocation was not considered possible and a new surveillance system was required.
In early 2012 Airbus Operations Limited, as part of their on-going development programme at Hawarden Airport, engaged Cyrrus to define, develop and manage the replacement of the Instrument Landing System (ILS) and Distance Measuring Equipment (DME) on Runway 22.
