A contract for the installation of national radars in Afghanistan has been signed between the Civil Aviation Authority and the French Thales company worth 112 million Euros, which will enter Afghanistan by 2023 with 12 independent radars.

The first consignment of these radars that arrived in Afghanistan today is to be installed at Kabul, Herat and Mazar-e-Sharif airports.

The installation of these radars will increase the level of revenue of the Afghan government and the revenue of each flight that passes via Afghanistan’s airspace will increase from $ 750 to $ 950.

On the other hand, the installation of these radars can increase the sovereignty of the Afghan government in the field of spatial control.
