Raytheon to supply MSSR systems to Romanian airports

Defence contractor Raytheon UK has been selected to supply Mode S Monopulse Secondary Surveillance Radar (MSSR) systems to the Romanian Air Traffic Services Administration, ROMATSA.

Under this contract, Raytheon will provide dual-channel, Condor Series 300 systems for the en-route radar sites at Romania’s Henri Coanda (Otopeni) International Airport, Constanta International Airport and Arad International Airport, during a 20-month programme.

The first system, for Otopeni, completed the factory acceptance test in May and is scheduled for hand over to ROMATSA by November 2011.

With 215 Mode S systems deployed internationally, including 57 in Europe, over the last 18 months Raytheon has introduced the technology to several customers in the Middle East.
