Systems Interface (SIL) has completed a turnkey contract to supply, install and commission a replacement non-directional beacon (NDB) at Tuzla International Airport

The contract was awarded by Roaming Networks Banja Luka on behalf of Bosnia and Herzegovina Air Navigation Service Agency (BHANSA). SIL, a UK-based firm, replaced the airport’s legacy equipment with a Nautel Vector 250W NDB Transmitter and 375W antenna tuning unit (ATU) complete with full remote control and monitoring, to limit worker exposure to radio frequency (RF) fields.

SIL also provided overall project management and a two-day on-site engineer training course, as well as attending the flight check. SIL has to date installed more than 200 Nautel NDBs at airports around the world.

Tuzla is Bosnia and Herzegovina’s second largest airport and is known as a low-cost airline hub for the people of Bosnia and neighbouring countries Croatia and Serbia.
