The leading designer and manufacturer of air traffic management equipment JSC Azimut has equipped two airports of the Republic of Komi with automatic direction finders DF2000. The direction finding systems are installed at the airports of Usinsk and Inta. Earlier, AZIMUT had completed putting direction finders into operation at the airports of Vorkuta and Pechora.
Usinsk airport provides inhabitants of the Arctic Circle areas with airline service with other cities of the Komi Republic and areas outside the region. Also, helicopter transportation is conducted from here to remote villages of Usinsk. Similar functions are performed by Inta airport within the eponymously-named city district.
The automatic direction finder DF2000, produced by JSC Azimut and installed at the regional airports of the Republic of Komi, provides for accurate aircraft setting within the sectors where controlled flight routes are through in the terminal area, which allows the controller to determine the direction of movement of the aircraft. A similar instrument, developed by JSC Azimut, is successfully operated at the airports of Petropavlovsk-Kamchatsky, Kursk, Kurilsk, and Kirensk.
All the works on commissioning the air navigation equipment are made in the interests of FSUE «State ATM Corporation».
