Upgrade of the Air Traffic Control Radar

April 14 2018

The Air Traffic Services Management System and Air Traffic Control Radar at Entebbe International Airport have been upgraded and this has led to migration from use of manual to automated electronic strips.

The ATC Radar can now integrate with Next Generation Technologies and can use data links with the Automatic Dependency Surveillance Broadcast (ADSB) in line with the International Civil Aviation Organization (ICAO) Aviation System Block Upgrades (ASBU). The upgrade has subsequently increased the safety nets from four to more than ten and given the Radar an extended lifespan of another ten years.
