Airsys-ATM has clinched a deal to modernise and equip the air traffic control (ATC) systems of the Sakha Republic (ex-Yakutia) in north-eastern Siberia, over which many trans-Siberian and planned cross-polar airways are routed. Under the contract, details of which have not been revealed, the joint venture between Thomson-CSF and Siemens will build a modern ATC centre in Yakutsk, with six secondary centres, plus remote sites at strategic points equipped with satellite and VHF communications.
