Czech system will ensure the safety of air traffic on the whole country of Fiji

ERA has signed a contract on the supply of the air traffic control system for an area of 18,000 m2 over the isles of Fiji. The contract consists of 10 brand new ADS-B stations and 1 central Processor, using solo ADS-B technology, which is predominant in this Asia Pacific region. An ADS-B equipped aircraft broadcast their GNSS positions once per second. The information received by the ADS-B ground station includes the aircraft's identification, altitude, speed, velocity, etc.

One of the priorities of Fiji has been to cover the entire air space with up-to-date technology to provide surveillance coverage over all the Fiji Islands and the traffic en-route connecting them. The installation of ADS-B system by ERA is supposed to be one of the main parts of the brand new ATM system that Fiji plans to introduce starting this year. Fiji wants to increase the level of air traffic safety and thus requires a reliable, cost effective and robust solution that will be able to endure the typical humid climate and be resistant against corrosion of the salty air environment.
