Control tower modernization.

CONTROL TOWER MODERNIZATION. The Civil Aviation Authority (GCAA) signed a US $3.4 million contract with Canada's Intelcan Technosystems Inc. to modernize the CNS/ATM infrastructure at the Control Tower, Timehri, reports GINA (Aug. 8, 2009). This will ensure that Guyana continues to meet obligations to the Intl Civil Aviation Organization's (ICAO's) air navigation plan, said Minister of Transport & Hydraulics Robeson Benn, adding that the project responds to predicted growth in air traffic over the next 15 years. Government is also expected to acquire an Air Traffic Management (ATM) system (an automated system interfaced with other communication components); an Automated Weather Observation System (AWOS) which will deliver real time information on pressure, wind speed, direction, temperature, due point, runway visual range and cloud base; and an Instrument Landing System/DME (ILS/DME) which will provide guidance for aircraft landing.
