Rohde & Schwarz has successfully completed the final Factory Acceptance Test for New Zealand’s nationwide Air Traffic Control voice communications system. R&S will now offer its ATC Communications Solutions to Airways, the country’s air navigation service provider. The roll-out is set to commence.
The innovative solution was chosen based on its reliability, innovation, and flexibility. The system’s IP design facilitates the pooling of ATC resources in a virtual control center. The quad-redundant, distributed architecture facilitates a “one center – two locations approach” and provides Airways with significantly increased resilience and unique geographic flexibility to manage their operations in a single trusted environment in the future.
The R&S VCS-4G innovative IP technology offers next-generation ATC features. The solution’s IP-based voice communications system is a flexible and cost-effective solution for all ATC voice communications needs, meeting established requirements for availability, reliability, and safety in ATC, as well as the growing need for dynamic ATC scenarios with network-based sharing and distribution of operational resources across multiple locations.
“Deployment is scheduled to begin towards the end of 2019, after which we will continue to support Airways in bringing the new system into service,” said Gareth Evans, Managing Director of Rohde & Schwarz.
