SITTI is proud to announce that the Ministry of Transportation has recently awarded SITTI a big contract for the supply of Voice Communication Systems (VCS) and ancillary equipment to the 19 major airports in Greece. This contract will allow the Hellenic Civil Aviation Authority (HCAA) to make use of the most recent and advanced systems for air traffic control in the central Mediterranean area.
The contract is divided into two lots:
- Larger Airports, including Thessaloniki, Kerkyra, Kos, Rhodes, Heraklion
- Regional Airports, like Chios, Kalamata, Paros, Samos, Milos, Skiathos, and many others
All these airports will receive a brand new MULTIFONO M800IP system, in full compliance with the international standards issued by the major standardisation bodies, with particular attention to the EUROCAE ED137 documents that define the use of VoIP (Voice over IP) in ATC/ATM (Air Traffic Control and Management). Main and backup VCS systems are envisaged for the larger airports.
The M800IP VCS will be complemented by a dual Digital Voice and Navigational Data Recording and Reproduction System (DVRRS), capable of recording and replaying detailed information about the information exchanged between controllers and pilots. A dedicated Time Reference and Display Systems (TRS) allows precise synchronisation between all pieces of equipment and permits perfect reproduction of recorded data.
Last but not least, SITTI will be providing the National Greek Air Traffic Control with 122 controller working positions (CWP) at the larger airports, plus another 44 positions for the regional ones. The controller working positions that are going to be supplied belong to renowned families of consoles manufactured by SITTI; they give controllers comfortable access to all communication devices, with optimal ergonomic solutions.
“The contract that has been signed between Greece and SITTI” – Massimo Crovato, SITTI CEO, states – “is a great confirmation of the outstanding capability of SITTI to cope with large programs covering entire Nations. It is also a further demonstration of the ductility of M800IP VCS systems and recorders that can be used in large as well as small airports and ACCs worldwide”.
