Rohde & Schwarz is a trusted partner for secure air traffic communications from the radio to the antenna. At World ATM Congress 2022 at IFEMA, Feria de Madrid in Madrid, Spain, in hall 9, booth 571, the company will showcase how its comprehensive CERTIUM portfolio and solutions will shape the future of civil air traffic control (ATC) operations. This includes:
CERTIUM, a unique portfolio from ATC working positions to antennas that is backed by extensive expertise in providing turnkey solutions and market standards.
The comprehensive portfolio of CERTIUM RADIOS includes the R&S Series5200 radio. The radio features innovative security-by-design architecture, a cost-efficient maintenance concept and outstanding RF performance, and covers the entire range used in ATC from VHF to UHF.
Recently introduced 5 kW HF high-power transmitters enable high data rates and crystal clear voice securely and across vast distances. The transmitters' critical modules feature operational redundancy, ensuring a very high level of availability. Housed in just a single rack, these new HF high-power transmitters reduce the space required by up to 75 % and have very low power consumption and therefore a low carbon footprint.
The fully IP based CERTIUM VCS solutions for modern ATC networks utilize all the advantages of IP technology and provide strong security, innovative resilience, quad redundancy and easy administration.
Rohde & Schwarz will also present the following trendsetting ATC solutions:
- ATC voice quality assurance – now enhanced with patented loopback monitoring
- ATM digitalization using future-oriented LDACS technology
- Reliable identification and localization of calling aircraft on the radar screen
- Drone based T&M equipment for high-precision analysis of GBASs during ground and flight operations
- Effective detection and countering of non-cooperative drones and their pilots
