To ensure highest level of safety and operational efficiency, Airports Authority of India (AAI) is planning to augment existing air traffic control (ATC) facilities of Indian Navy at Dabolim Airport in Goa by making provision of real time data of air traffic operating in the airspace adjoining Goa airspace.

 
The real time processed data of multiple ATC radar feeds from Mumbai ATC automation system will be transported to Navy ATC officers at Goa. The air traffic situational data display in Navy ATC tower will provide a complete details of inbound, outbound flights operating to Goa as well as en-route flights under control of Indian Navy ATC.
 
AAI officials discussed various operational issues with the Indian Navy to enhance safety, operational efficiency and airport capacity at Goa International airport recently.
 
In addition to multiple RADAR data feed from Mumbai, AAI is in the process of installing a Next Generation Surveillance System, ADS-B (Automated Dependent Surveillance- Broadcast) at Goa airport. The ADS-B data also will be processed in Mumbai ATC system. In case of failure of radars, the ADS-B data will still be available to Navy ATC.
 
With the augmentation of ATC surveillance facilities at Goa airport, in addition to improved safety and operational efficiency, AAI will be contributing significantly in CO2 emission reductions as ATC will be able to allocate optimum flight levels during en-route, climb and descent phases of the flight.
 
A significant improvement in the Instrument Landing System (ILS) at Goa International airport is in pipeline by replacing the old ILS of Indian Navy with a modern one to improve the safety of flight operations.
