NAMA, Air Force partner on airports’ safety

The Nigerian Airspace Management Agency, NAMA, said it was collaborating with the Nigerian Air Force, NAF, to improve safety of the country’s airspace.

Its General Manager, Public Affairs, Mr. Supo Atobatele, said in a statement that “the Chief of Air Staff, Air Marshal Alex Badeh, who hosted the management of NAMA led by its Managing Director, Mr. Nnamdi Udoh, in Abuja at the weekend, promised that NAF would continue to collaborate with the agency on issues bordering on security, surveillance and personnel training.”

Atobatele said Badeh, who applauded the coverage and operation of the new radar in the country, said the system had improved the surveillance of the airspace tremendously.

Badeh reportedly lauded the initiative of the agency on its proposed deployment of Automatic Dependent Surveillance Broadcast, ADS-B ‘multilateration’ to capture low flying aircraft like helicopters in the Niger Delta area.

Earlier in his speech, Udoh acknowledged the current partnership between the two organisations, pointing out that such effort had enhanced the smooth running of the country’s airspace under the joint civil/military joint users’ collaboration.
