In the wake of the current conflicts in the political arena of Pakistan and India over Indian Occupied Kashmir, the danger and threat of war is gaining weight. While both the countries are facing security threats, the Civil Aviation Authority (CAA) of Pakistan has taken a step of installing about nine state-of-the-art surveillance radars at several airports all over Pakistan in order to protect its airspace.
Every station of the radar is highly equipped with modern technology. Upgraded in line with the new technological advancement, the radar stations can locate and detect aircraft from a considerable wide distance.
Equipped with primary surveillance, the three stations are reported to be made in the Czech Republic whereas, the remaining six radars with secondary surveillance facility were made in Spain.
Furthermore, these up to date radar systems are totally amalgamated with the Central Air Traffic Management.
The whole process of installing these new hi-tech radar systems have successfully been brought to completion. Therefore, they can be seen at Pakistan’s major airports which are inclusive of Jinnah Terminal Airport Karachi, Allama Iqbal International Airport Lahore, and New Islamabad Airport. They are further installed at some crucial locations of Pasni, Rojhan and Lakpass area of Balochistan.
According to a CAA official, this adaptation of technology in terms of protection of our aircraft is highly important in regard to the recent circumstances. This will not only improve airspace security but will also work to exude a sense of safety in opposition to the dangerous foreign security threat posed by India every now and then.
The innovation is one step forward for the betterment of Pakistani defense system. Do you agree? Have something to add to the story? Let us know through the comments below.
