Cambridge City Airport has invested in a new and improved Instrument Landing System (ILS) and co - located Distance Measuring Equipment (DME) to provide an enhanced precision approach that enables aircraft to approach the runway in darkness or adverse weathe r conditions where visibility is limited. The airport has awarded the contract to Systems Interface (SIL), a UK specialist that will design, supply, install and commission an ILS system comprising Localiser and Antenna systems, Glidepath and Antenna Systems and a Low Power DME.

“We want to ensure pilots have access to the latest navigational aids and a new ILS ensures we maintain the highest levels of safety for aircraft using Cambridge City Airport that we can ,” said Airport Director, Kevan Craske.

“We continue to invest in up to the minute navigation aids and after a competitive tender process knew that SIL were the company to provide the equipment and services we needed. We wanted to ensure we have the best solution for our airfield, coupled with our new radar installation, which is being constructed and due for completion in 2021, we aim to set the standard for safety and compliance in business and general aviation.”

The complete system includes Remote Control and Monitoring and Remote Maint enance and Monitoring. All Civil Works and Project Management will be provided by SIL.
