Oleg Yevtushenko, expert in chief, represented NITA at the event with presentation on the subject of Mobile solutions for airfields equipment in the Arctic zone and northern regions of the Russian Federation. The concern of reconstruction and equipment of airports and airfields in the Arctic zone holds sway due to poor current condition of aviation infrastructure facilities and demand for increasing intensity of flights in northern regions. Use of mobile and modular solutions for air traffic management facilities objectively can positively change the situation in a reasonably short time frame to support Arctic flight operations.
The conference included meetings with other participants of the event: representatives of the companies and organizations who expressed interest in the company’s solutions and products. They discussed possibility of cooperation for the development of projects to solve the problem of expanding the network of airfields and landing sites, providing transport accessibility to sparsely populated and hard-to-reach areas of the Arctic with harsh environment and climate.
