Bayanat Engineering Qatar celebrates milestone achievement with completion of “Supply and Installation of LIDAR System at HIA” project with partner Vaisala for Qatar Civil Aviation Authority – Qatar Meteorology Department

Bayanat Engineering Qatar, a leading force in cutting-edge technological solutions, proudly announces the successful completion of its innovative project in partnership with Vaisala for the Qatar Civil Aviation Authority – Qatar Meteorology Department. The project “Supply and Installation of LIDAR System at HIA,” marks a significant milestone for Qatar.
The implementation of the LIDAR system at Hamad International Airport signifies an advanced step in modern meteorological forecasting, filling an important gap. The state-of-the-art technology, a first in the MENA region, promises unparalleled accuracy and reliability, providing continuous awareness of the boundary layer and other vital factors. The scanning LIDAR system empowers better forecasting, informed decision-making, and more effective crisis management, positioning Qatar at the forefront of meteorological advancements.
The LIDAR system is a crucial tool in aviation safety, detecting wind shear and gusts to provide timely warnings for airport operators. This not only enhances safety but also improves landing capacity by reducing spacing between aircraft in the approach path. With its 360-degree 3D wind awareness at long range, the LIDAR system provides comprehensive data for meteorology decision-makers, ensuring safety and operational efficiency. Its deployment brings various benefits, including enhanced weather forecasting, improved climate modeling, and increased frequency of landings and take-offs, showcasing its transformative impact on Qatar’s aerospace safety and efficiency.
“Bayanat Engineering Qatar is thrilled to announce the successful completion of the ‘Supply and Installation of LIDAR System at HIA’ project in partnership with Vaisala for the Qatar Civil Aviation Authority – Qatar Meteorology Department. With Bayanat Engineering Qatar expertise in the State of Qatar with over 20-year experience and Vaisala’s solutions built on decades of experience and cutting-edge technology, this project stands as a remarkable achievement for Qatar’s Meteorology Department and the Civil Aviation Authority for Hamad International Airport. We are proud to be a part of this project, which further strengthens the safety of Qatar’s aerospace and contributes to more sustainable environmental path.

Qatar completed a major step forward towards enhancing aviation navigation by launching a cutting-edge long-range L-Band radar. This radar system, supplied and built by Thales, a global pioneer in advanced technologies and implemented by Bayanat Engineering Qatar, a key system integrator in the Qatari market, marks a significant increase in Qatar’s air traffic control capabilities.

The newly deployed L-Band radar uses cutting-edge technology and satisfies the most recent national and international requirements. It is advantageously positioned to cover the vast Doha Flight Information Region (FIR), with a range of 250 nautical miles (about 400 kilometres). Remarkably, it has the capacity to detect airplanes at altitudes ranging from 3,000 to 65,000 feet.

“The aerospace sector in Qatar is well known for its exceptional safety practices and outstanding accomplishments. The nation’s aerospace capabilities have reached new heights with the completion of the L-Band for QCAA (Qatar Civil Aviation Authority) project by Bayanat Engineering Qatar and Thales,” said Hasan Ezzeddine, managing partner Bayanat Engineering Qatar.

“The introduction of the modern L-Band QCAA radar system emphasises Qatar’s dedication to preserving and improving its exemplary track record in air safety. This radar system enhances the current safety facilities by incorporating cutting-edge technology, thereby ensuring the ongoing security of Qatar’s airspace. The development of its infrastructure and the adoption of cutting-edge techniques have always been top priorities for Qatar’s aerospace industry. The conclusion of the L-Band QCAA project is a testament to Qatar’s innovative thinking and commitment to staying at the forefront of the sector”, Ezzeddine added.

“Qatar demonstrates its dedication to meeting and exceeding international standards by this large expenditure, reaffirming its position as a world leader in aircraft safety. The L-Band QCAA radar system significantly enhances Qatar’s already outstanding aerospace accomplishments and solidifies its position as an exceptional and safe airspace. We are delighted to have finished a project of this scope and we intend to keep doing so to provide Qatar our support for the Qatar 2030 goal”, he concluded.

The implementation of this radar is part of the QCAA’s dedication in achieving the Doha FIR’s key strategic goals of improving air traffic management in Qatari airspace and early detection of aviation activity inside the region.
