Requirement of Back up RADAR in Kolkata ATC

Sir,

This is to reiterate that Kolkata ATC is in urgent need of Back up RADAR especially due to its complex route structure and high density of Air Traffic. In recent times, the traffic density in Kolkata FIR has gone up to such an extent that it certainly necessitates the continuous use of RADAR for the purpose of climb, descent, direct routing to the aircraft and handling deviation in adverse weather condition.

In the absence of Back up RADAR in Kolkata, the provision of RADAR service is limited as per DOC 4444, Chapter VI, Section 4.2(e & f) which states that “The number of aircraft simultaneously provided with RADAR service shall not exceed that which can safely be handled under the prevailing circumstances, taking into account:

  1. the possibility of Radar equipment failure or other emergency that would eventually require reverting to Back up facilities and / or non RADAR separation;

  2. the degree of technical reliability and availability of the Back up RADAR and communication system.”

A RADAR failure in absence of Back up RADAR in busy traffic scenario could lead to extremely hazardous and catastrophic situation.

Therefore, it is requested to take immediate steps to initiate the installation of Back up RADAR in Kolkata, the importance of which can never be over emphasized.

With regards,

R K Singh
General Secretary
