Rohde & Schwarz has successfully delivered communications equipment for mobile air traffic control (ATC) towers to a customer in the United Arab Emirates (UAE).
Having already supplied an UAE customer with radios in the past, Rohde & Schwarz has been chosen again, as the company provided the best solution for the customer. Each mobile ATC tower consists of a cabin equipped with consoles, all installed on a lifting system fixed on a trailer that is fitted to be transportable by a C17 transport aircraft. Each cabin has been designed to accommodate three controller working positions, equipped with R&S Series4200 software defined radios, CERTIUM VCS voice communications system, CERTIUM Management and CERTIUM Gateways.
“We selected Rohde & Schwarz due to the company’s capacity and cost effectiveness. We are very happy with the design, implementation and delivery of the project,” said the UAE customer.
“We have a long and successful history of supplying our communications equipment for mobile ATC towers,” said Patrick Brodda, Managing Director Rohde & Schwarz Emirates. “This additional order confirms our successful collaboration with the UAE customer, reaffirming our long-term commitment to our customer.”
The R&S Series4200 has been proven in the field with over 30,000 radios deployed around the world. The software defined architecture makes the latest release of the radio compliant with the latest ED-137C standard and a reliable solution for years to come. CERTIUM VCS is a quad-redundant, IP based voice communications system that perfectly integrates with the entire CERTIUM portfolio to ensure safe, secure and efficient airspace operations. As a turnkey supplier for secure aerospace communications solutions, Rohde & Schwarz brings decades of experience and is a trusted partner.
