Air Navigation and Landing Aids
We offer a comprehensive portfolio of different navigation aids according to NATO and ICAO standards, including:
Instrumental Landing System (ILS)
Our ILS is a precision approach system that guides aircraft to the runway using a combination of radio signals to enable a safe landing, particularly in poor visibility conditions.
Very High Frequency Omni-Directional Range (VOR)
The VOR system is a type of short-range radio navigation system for aircraft, enabling them to determine their position and stay on course by receiving radio signals transmitted by a network of fixed ground radio beacons.
Tactical Air Navigation (TACAN)
TACAN provides navigation information to military aircraft. It combines the features of the VOR system with distance measuring equipment, allowing for both azimuth and distance measurements.
Distance Measurement Equipment (DME)
DME is an essential part of navigation that calculates the distance between an aircraft and a ground station. It uses pulse signals to measure slant range distance, improving overall navigation precision.
Marker Beacon (MB)
MB systems are used as part of the ILS to provide pilots with a means to determine their position relative to the runway and to identify decision points during the approach for landing.
Non-directional Beacon (NDB)
An NDB is a ground-based radio transmitter that emits radio energy in all directions. It provides the aircraft with a bearing towards the beacon and is used especially in conjunction with the Automatic Direction Finder equipment on the aircraft.
Airfield Lighting System (ALS)
Our ALS encompasses the various lighting equipment and systems on an airfield, which include runway and taxiway lighting, approach light systems, and other visual aids that are crucial for take-off, landing, and taxiing, particularly during periods of low visibility.
At Balkantel, we understand the critical role these systems play in aviation safety. Our solutions are built with the latest technology to ensure reliable performance and adherence to international standards.
