The head of the Libyan army’s air defences, Brigadier-General Juma Hussein El-Abani, has told the Libya Herald that the Ministry of Transport plans to implement a major radar project to monitor Libyan airspace.
The project will begin with work at the radar station at Tripoli International Airport.
In addition, a civil aviation information centre would be built in Benghazi to act as a back-up for the main centre in Tripoli.
The air navigation centre in Jufra would be under the direct control of the air defence forces which would also operate the radar station in Sirte. Radar stations in Sebha and Tazirbu would be upgraded. El-Abani said he and the minister had talked about supplying equipment needed to resume work at Tobruk radar station.
