Rohde & Schwarz is delivering and implementing its full IP voice communication system, CERTIUM VCS, to the international airports in Skopje and Ohrid in the Republic of North Macedonia. Under a contract with North-Macedonian Air Navigation Service Provider (ANSP) M-NAV GOJSC, who is operating throughout the national territory of the republic, factory acceptance tests (FAT) were recently concluded at the Rohde & Schwarz Center of Competence for VCS in Bucharest, Romania. Currently the installation and deployment of the project are successfully undergoing on site.

M-NAV GOJSC will use CERTIUM®VCS to cover the main operations of the area control center (ACC), the airport control towers (tower and/or approach), as well as simulator and to provide integrated air-ground and ground-ground communications.

One of the challenges of the project was to integrate two remote working position at Ohrid airport as a part of the same voice communications system deployed at Skopje airport. Due to the cutting-edge VoIP technology embedded within CERTIUM®VCS, an easy implementation of VPN communications for the equipment located at both sites is enabled. CERTIUM®VCS provides full redundancy, including distributed deployment over various sites. The contract between M-NAV GOJSC and Rohde & Schwarz was signed in May 2022.

Dragoljub Patchev, Project manager at the M-NAV Technical Department, emphasizes: “The Rohde & Schwarz communication system is very advanced and flexible, ahead of time, solution for M-NAV GOJSC that can enable our future expansions and ensure to meet all our requirements for provisioning safe, secure and efficient air traffic management in North Macedonia.”

”Our CERTIUM®VCS solution offers outstanding flexibility and we are confident the new system in North Macedonia will improve safety, security and efficiency, helping M-NAV GOJSC cope with evolving ATC operational requirements,” Alexandru Negulescu, Managing Director, Rohde & Schwarz Center of Competence for VCS, concludes.
