Indra Navia is to provide its new InNOVA Ground solution to London’s Heathrow Airport, as part of an airport surface movement guidance and control system (A-SMGCS) upgrade.
The tower display and surface movement systems in the Visual Control Room at Heathrow will be merged into a single InNOVA Ground platform. Another system will be installed as a backup in the Virtual Contingency Facility at the UK hub.
InNOVA Ground replaces a legacy A-SMGCS at Heathrow. The new system includes improved tracking and display features, as well as Single European Sky ATM Research (SESAR) functionality such as advanced ground safety nets.
