TCAA, Comsoft To Increase Flight Safety

Tanzania Civil Aviation Authority (TCAA) has signed a contract with ATC specialist, Comsoft for the provision of two technologies - the AIDA-NG and the central portion of the ADS-B surveillance equipment – to be installed at its ATC centre in Dar Es Salaam. The new relationship will help TCAA with its plan to improve its air navigation and communication equipment, in order to increase flight safety in the region. “The first phase of the ADS-B implementation that will be carried out by Comsoft will bring about a significant reduction in the maintenance costs of old radar systems and, in the same front, AIDA-NG will bring revolution to the way we transmit data,” said Flora Alphonce, senior engineer, TCCA.
