Gatwick Airport selects Precision Applications

Precision Applications has been selected by Gatwick Airport to supply and install a new ATC Recording System.
Precision Applications has been chosen to supply and install an ATC Recording System at Gatwick Airport. The new system will replace the current recording facility and will be fully compliant with the latest ICAO requirements and the new regulations for recording radar data, specified in UK CAA CAP 670, which came into force on the 1st January 2012. The Veristore Recording System was recommended by NATS and selected by Gatwick Airport.

Similar systems, which record and synchronously replay audio signals, radar data (both through-the-wall, raw radar and at-the-glass, controller screen capture information) have already been installed at 9 major UK airports during 2011. All of these systems have been accepted by the UK CAA and are now fully operational. This brings the total number of installations in the UK to more than 20, which together record over 1100 voice channels, 60 raw radar channels and 58 controller screens.

Gatwick Airport is the second largest international airport and the second busiest airport by total passenger traffic, in the UK. More than 32 million passengers transit Gatwick Airport each year, travelling to over 200 destinations, carried by approximately 90 different carriers. It is the worlds busiest single runway airport with an average of 52 aircraft movements per hour. It was also the worlds first airport with a direct railway link and the first to combine mainline railway travel, trunk road facilities and an air terminal in one unit.

Precision Applications is very pleased to be working with NATS to install and commission the new Recording System. NATS provide Air Traffic Control services at many airports both in the UK and overseas. Their prime objective is to deliver safety critical services whilst making airport operations more efficient and profitable. Their success has been demonstrated by their achievement in delivering market leading levels of air traffic capacity at both Gatwick and Heathrow Airports, the two largest and busiest airports in the UK.

Denise Malyan, Managing Director of Precision Applications said we are delighted that both NATS and Gatwick Airport have demonstrated their confidence in our Veristore Recorders, which we believe are the world leaders in the field of ATC recording. We are confident that our equipment will meet all of their needs and provide a totally reliable recording system, which may be easily expanded as new requirements are identified and new legislation is introduced.
