Air traffic control radios for air navigation service providers

Air Navigation Service Provider (ANSP)

Fully IP based, end to end solutions

Air navigation service providers (ANSP) have a huge responsibility for the safe, reliable and smooth organization of air traffic. They also have to meet the market oriented demands of civil aviation. Solutions for providers need to be reliable, interoperable and cost effective.

A geographically distributed, IP based communications infrastructure from Rohde & Schwarz is the optimum solution to these challenges. The R&S®VCS 4G in combination with the R&S®Series4200 radios ensures safe and economical air traffic management.

Unlike the older TDM systems, modern VoIP systems shift the processing of information to decentralized equipment. A fully IP based solution can be distributed between several locations. This means that a fault in one part of the system does not affect the rest of the system. Geographical redundancy ensures additional resilience against faults in the systems.

EuroCAE defines voice communications in the ATC environment in the ED-137 standard. All air traffic control radios from Rohde & Schwarz comply with this standard, ensuring that all system components are harmonized with each other.

The shared use of identical resources at multiple locations considerably reduces the investment for ANSPs. Additional cost savings arise from the fact that this IP infrastructure can be used for the transmission of both speech and data. This results in significant synergy effects in procurement, operation and maintenance.
