Dubai raises comms technology with new Park deal

Posted 7 March 2016 · Add Comment

Northrop Grumman Park Air Systems, the UK-based air traffic communication systems subsidiary of Northrop Grumman Corporation, is to expand the capability of the ATC communication systems at Dubai International (DXB) and Dubai World Central (DWC).

Under the terms of a contract awarded to Bayanat Engineering U.A.E., Dubai Air Navigation Services (DANS) will receive Park Air Sapphire portfolio products including its latest Park Air T6 Radio at five radio sites at each airport. The system will simultaneously support both legacy E1 and Voice over IP (VoIP) connectivity and provide flexibility to enable radio channels to be connected to a network of Park Air S4 IP Controllers while also connecting to the airports’ legacy voice switch.

The Park Air T6 Radio is an integral part of the Sapphire portfolio and will deliver to DANS Simultaneous Call Transmission (SCT) detection, a method whereby the T6 Radio receiver will detect that two pilots have spoken at the same time and sends an alert to the air traffic controller to take appropriate action.

The new Park Air T6 Radio is the lightest and smallest radio in its class, its power consumption has been minimised and it’s free of toxic materials such as beryllia and lithium.

Delivery of the system will begin this month.
