Voice communication für air navigation service providers

Safe and efficient solutions for area control centers

Although overall demand for air travel continues to rise, especially in emerging countries, en-route flight volumes cannot be reliably predicted. Routing patterns change depending on weather conditions and political crises or unrest can rule out flying across certain regions. To cope with increasing, but also highly volatile en-route traffic volumes, air navigation service providers (ANSP) require systems and operational models for their area control centers that allow them to quickly upscale their capacities while still remaining flexible and optimizing staff deployment.

The CERTIUM® advanced communications suite provides solutions to these challenges. Thanks to a full IP based architecture, it supports a pay-as-you grow approach. For example, the voice communication system CERTIUM® VCS quickly upscales the number of controller working positions in one center from a few dozen to several hundred. CERTIUM® RADIOS are the perfect match for this, with a proven track record of nationwide communications infrastructures with thousands of radios. With CERTIUM® MANAGEMENT, engineering teams have the status of all systems at their fingertips and benefit from multiple layers of redundancy. This maximizes system availability and safety.

CERTIUM® LOCATE offers the controller enhanced situational awareness even for dense en-route traffic by automatically georeferencing calling aircraft on the radar screen. This reduces call-sign confusion and psychological stress for the controller and increases safety.

For decades, air navigation service providers around the globe have relied on Rohde & Schwarz systems for their daily operations. More than 30,000 ATC radios deployed and more than 200 VCSs contracted worldwide, the company has a proven track record.
