The ENAV Group, as recalled in the Code of Ethics, considers the protection of the environment and the sustainable development of the territory in which it operates, to be of primary importance in consideration of the rights of the community and of future generations. ENAV, in the knowledge that some of the activities that it performs (radio assistance, air-ground communications, surveillance) require a certain number of structures that generate electromagnetic fields of different entities, maintains a detailed mapping of the aforementioned structures and sites that border on protected areas.
The general objective pursued, both in the installation and in the consequent technical operation, consists of the adoption of all the technical-functional devices that permit the maintenance the Electric and Electromagnetic Field values, resulting in the emission of electromagnetic radiation below the threshold values of the current legislation on the subject.
Given this objective, ENAV has defined a process whereby, whenever an apparatus is to be installed, an environmental impact study is carried out, evaluating, together with the ARPA (Regional agency for environmental protection), the possibility of installation without this generating harmful consequences for the stability of the ecosystem. By virtue of this, all ATM installations and systems emitting electromagnetic radiation conform to both the legislation applicable in the ATM area (ICAO, EASA, ENAC, etc.) and to the specific health protection regulations. The installations are equipped with buffer zones that are prohibited to personnel when the systems are functioning (as in the case for example of the NDB, the Glide Slope indicator or the Locator) or the systems are calibrated to emit with directions and angles such as not to interfere with the presence of the personnel and in any case generating electric and electromagnetic fields below the threshold values.
