The government has provided first pass approval for Phases 2 and 3 of the Air 5431 Air Traffic Management and Control Systems project.
This project will – in conjunction with Airservices Australia – deliver replacement surveillance radars and tower and approach automation systems for the current systems which are approaching the end of their life of type. A key feature of the project will be to enhance interoperability between military and civil air traffic management systems, as announced in the 2009 National Aviation Policy White Paper – Flight Path to the Future.
The government has approved funding of $6.9 million for capability development activities, prior to second pass, which is scheduled for 2013-2014. The total cost of these phases is identified in the Public DCP as being between $300 and $500 million.
