The French defence electronics company Thomson CSF SA, which manufactures the MLS radio aid system for aircraft landing, has signed a collaboration agreement with the Spanish company Page Iberica, which develops applied telecommunications technology for air traffic control and navigation. The first result of this agreement, says Tribuna Informatica is a project within the General Board of Civil Aviation in Spain for the supply, installation, implementation and maintenance of the navigation system at Salamanca airport. In fact, this system, designed by Thomson, is to substitute the ILS system currently operating in all Spanish airports. MLS has been in operation since last year at Oslo airport and is now being installed at Charles de Gaulle in Paris. Page Iberica, part of the Banco Espanol de Credito’s Corporacion Industrial, and with significant shares in the Amper Group, was set up in 1965, and since then has been carrying out fundamental projects within the Spanish General Board of Civil Aviation and Ministry of Defence. Page Iberica did $54m turnover in 1989.
