Helicopter trips from and to Nigeria will be captured and transmitted.

An indigenous operator, NAEBI Dynamic Concepts Limited, has recently acquired extra equipment to amplify their capabilities in air surveillance services. Reports indicate that the company has made new investments in various support information technology facilities such as Information Technology Tracking Devices, Body-worn Cameras, and a comprehensive Control Room Facility Rack. This new equipment is designed to capture and transmit data for helicopters involved in trip to and from Nigeria. Chike Stanley, NAEBI’s Managing Director, expressed that the company’s objective of enhancing operations and generating revenue for the federal government is embodied in their decision to re-fleet their equipment profile.

Stanley mentioned that NAEBI Dynamic Concepts Limited plans to procure a Mobile Radar system to enhance its surveillance capabilities for low altitude flights. The radar will operate at an altitude of 5000 feet above sea level, equipped with advanced high-resolution cameras and cutting-edge technological gadgets, which will be strategically deployed within the designated area. The overarching objective is to enhance data collection, bolster the Gross Domestic Product via the Ministry of Aviation, generate employment opportunities, mitigate security threats, and address the issue of restlessness among young people, specifically in the Niger Delta area.

New group of HMOs will be trained in AVSEC courses.

In order to enhance efficient navigational services, the company plans to deploy the required gadgets. Additionally, they have set their sights on training a new group of Helicopter Monitoring Officers (HMOs) in Aviation Security (AVSEC) courses. These courses will include the basic 1, 2, and 3 levels, provided by the Nigeria College of Aviation Technology (NCAT) and International Civil Aviation Organization (ICAO) and is expected to be completed by the first quarter of 2024. He asserts that the organization has faith in the overall triumph of this endeavor and will persist in making every possible effort to maintain International standard protocols in accomplishing its assigned duties.

With the objective of preventing any potential decline in revenue, they have taken the initiative to engage with various industry stakeholders. The consultation process involves collaborating with different entities such as the Helicopter Operators, Nigeria Airspace Management Agency’s Airspace Managers, Air Traffic Controllers, Executive Governors in the Niger Delta Region, as well as International Oil Companies (ILOs)/Local Oil Companies (LOCs). He stated that progress has already been made in implementing the surveillance project, with the current setback being ease of access and compliance. Resolving these issues would take approximately three months.

Regarding the launch of the project, he said that it would require approximately one year to deliver the Control Room. Expressing gratitude to the Ministry of Aviation and Aerospace Development delegates for their participation in the project, he acknowledged their presence during the visit to the United Kingdom, where they gained invaluable firsthand insights into the project and its operational procedures. Furthermore, he emphatically assured the delegates that the company possesses the necessary capabilities to meet the project’s deadlines.

Moreover, Stanley praised the Minister of Aviation & Aerospace Development, Mr. Festus Keyamo (SAN)’s efforts in addressing the bureaucracy in the system in order to expedite the development. Despite facing challenges, he remains optimistic about the company’s ability to accomplish even more. Mr. Martin Head, an official from the Equipment Company in the United Kingdom, Tensor, revealed that they are engaged in a collaboration with NAEBI Dynamic Concepts Limited and the Federal Ministry of Aviation with regards to accomplish the tracking of Helicopters from and to Nigeria right from the Control Room.
