Incident at Springbank, AB (ATM - NAVAIDS/radar)


1999-03-08: The NARDS (NavCanada Radar Display System) failed at the Springbank Tower at 1805Z. Technical support was notified and it was suggested that all applications be shut down and then log back on. This did not rectify the problem and at 1950Z, the technical support staff were able to fix the problem. Apparently, NavCanada's lease had expired on the LAN, which prevented Tower staff from logging on to the system. The system shutdown meant no radar service in the Springbank Control Zone and extended Class D airspace for about 1 hour and 45 minutes. OPI - System Safety
