DF Núcleo has been awarded the contract to upgrade the Voice Communications Systems (VCS) and the associated Ground-Air Communications Systems (GACS) of the Santander and San Sebastián airports.
The upgrade of the VCSs involves the migration to VoIP technology and will replace the discontinued CD-20 (the older version of the ULISES V5000i) that was installed by DF Núcleo 17 years ago in both airports.
This turnkey project covers the Fully Operational Supply of some of the communication systems that are most important in an airport's air traffic control. These will replace the existing systems, which, in addition to having reached the end of their life cycle, belong to a generation of technology that cannot be adapted to the current regulations and requirements. The following systems will be implemented:

The Company is also carrying out the project to supply the VoIP communications gateways for the Aerial Navigation Data Network (REDAN) throughout Spain and has been awarded a contract to upgrade the VHF radio equipment in the Adolfo Suarez Madrid-Barajas Airport and recording systems in three control centres.
