 Guwahati airport is getting state-of-the-art surveillance air traffic control (ATC) radar system. The upcoming radar system is going to cover almost the entire north eastern sky.

Airports Authority of India (AAI) has undertaken the project of replacing 20 year old radar system with the new technology. It is a part of AAI’s continuing endeavor of modernising Air Navigation Services (ANS) with new radars, Automatic Dependent Surveillance– Broadcasting equipment and ATS automation systems at various locations in India. 
 
The data from the new radar will be integrated with the INDRA ATS Automation system of the local Approach Control and Area Control Centers at Guwahati.
 
The same data will also be provided and integrated with other automation systems for providing satisfactory radar coverage at the required levels, over the north eastern air space. The upcoming radar system is from Czech Republic based ELDIS Company. 
 
The radar is of high resolution and extensive digital signal processing capability. The software used in the new primary radar is complex and gives excellent monitoring of the various types of aircrafts in the north east sky.
