Ministry of Transportation and Civil Aviation of the Islamic Emirate of Afghanistan on Sunday, December 26 announced that three French Radars arrived in Kabul and were submitted to the ministry.
The three Radars will be installed in the Afghan capital Kabul, Balkh, and Herat province.
The statement of the ministry reads that the French Company Thales will provide Afghanistan with these Radars by the end of 2023 and enable Afghanistan to gain full control of its aerial space.
Afghanistan currently has a contract worth 112 million Euros with the French Company Thales.
The Radars are supposed to be installed in 12 sites in Afghanistan.
It is worth mentioning that the contract was initially signed between Thales and the relevant administrations of the previous Afghan government.
The First consignment of independent Radar had arrived in Kabul in July this year and the Radars were installed in Herat and Mazar-e-Sharif.
The Radars arrived in Kabul at a time as Afghanistan has not been gaining revenue from its airspace since they recaptured power on August 15.
The Radars will help Afghanistan gain control over its airspace and ultimately make revenue of its space.
