Cambridge City Airport has invested in a new and improved Instrument Landing System (ILS) and colocated Distance Measuring Equipment (DME) to provide an enhanced precision approach that enables aircraft to approach the runway in darkness or in adverse weather conditions where visibility is limited.

The airport has awarded the contract to Systems Interface (SIL), a U.K. specialist that will design, supply, install and commission an ILS system comprising localizer 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.

The complete system includes remote control and monitoring, and remote maintenance and monitoring. All civil works and project management will be provided by SIL.
