New Austro Control Tower in Salzburg: Technical Solutions from FREQUENTIS Support Operations

- Vienna, Austria

In February 2014, the Austrian aviation agency Austro Control started operations at the new tower at the Salzburg airport. The W. A. Mozart airport in Salzburg now has one of the most modern control towers in Europe. With a total of four systems Frequentis supports operations at the Salzburg airport, which, with over 1.7 million passengers annually, is the second-largest airport in Austria.

Austro Control and Frequentis are bound by a successful partnership spanning several decades, which has produced a number of system solutions. Four of them are also in operation at Salzburg airport:

Voice Communication System VCS3020X: A call for tenders was made for the system with special customer-specific adaptations in late 2009 for the Klagenfurt, Salzburg and Innsbruck facilities. The Salzburg system was put into operation in spring 2012 and has now been moved to the new building.

Recording System DIVOS 3log: A call for tenders was made for the system for voice and data recording in 2010, and the system was put into operation together with the VCS.

Network Node VCX: For the new tower in Salzburg the VCX that has been in use up till now was moved and was installed in two separate fire zones.

Tower Information System ADD (Aerodrome Data Display): The ADD has been in operation since 2000; it was developed in cooperation between Austro Control and Frequentis to provide optimal display of information in the tower.

With the new tower, Austro Control fulfils the requirements that will enable it to guarantee safe and efficient processing of air traffic in the future. As a long-standing business partner, Frequentis is proud to be a part of this project.
