Kota Kinabalu Flight Information Region Modernises with Thales

Feb 08. 2018  Thales is making a comeback into Malaysia’s Air Traffic Management (ATM) scene working jointly with Novatis Resources to upgrade Kota Kinabalu’s Flight Information Region’s (FIR) Air Traffic Control (ATC) system.

To improve air traffic services for safer and smoother travel within Malaysia’s airspace, Kota Kinabalu’s FIR, one of the two in the country, will be receiving this series of upgrades including a new air traffic control system, radars, ground station, surveillance systems and distance measurement equipment in the next three years.

Together with local contractor, Novatis Resources, Thales will bring its state-of-the-art ICAO’s ASBU-ready TopSky-ATC system, its new generation primary and secondary co-mounted radars, ADS-B (Automatic Dependent Surveillance-Broadcast) ground stations and latest DVOR-DME.

The ubiquity of the TopSky ATC in the region will give Malaysia’s DCA the advantage of interoperability with its neighbouring countries.
