Posted: 2016 Mar 12
Following a rigorous review by NATS - the United Kingdom’s (UK) air navigation service provider (ANSP), Harris Corporationhas been selected to supply a next-generation, VoIP communications system for the UK’s air traffic management (ATM) services.
“This upgrade to our voice communications system is part of a wider piece of work that will see us transform how we manage air traffic in the UK over the next five years,” said Martin Rolfe, NATS Chief Executive Officer. “It’s a hugely ambitious programme that will offer major benefits for our airline and airport customers. As such we need trusted partners like Harris with a proven track record of delivery and we’re delighted to be working with them on such an integral project.”As part of the Single European Sky ATM Research (SESAR) project, NATS plans to invest nearly $1 billion in new technologies over the next five years to enable SESAR and other future concepts.
Harris will deliver its cloud-based Voice Communications System for the 21st Century (VCS21) to NATS, which will be installed at three facilities in the UK. It will involve more than 600 controller working positions that can access up to 2,000 radios across NATS control operations."With this award, the Harris VCS21 system is now supporting two of the world’s premier ANSPs – NATS and the FAA – that are at the forefront of modernizing ATM worldwide,” said Ed Sayadian, president, Harris Mission Networks.
