Dubai, November 15, 2021 – Rohde & Schwarz has successfully delivered communications
equipment for mobile air traffic control (ATC) towers to a customer in the United
Arab Emirates (UAE).
Having already supplied an UAE customer with radios in the past, Rohde &
Schwarz has been chosen again, as the company provided the best solution for the
customer. Each mobile ATC tower consists of a cabin equipped with consoles, all
installed on a lifting system fixed on a trailer that is fitted to be transportable
by a C17 transport aircraft. Each cabin has been designed to accommodate three controller
working positions, equipped with R&S Series4200 software defined radios, CERTIUM
VCS voice communications system, CERTIUM Management and CERTIUM Gateways.
“We selected Rohde & Schwarz due to the company’s capacity and cost effectiveness.
We are very happy with the design, implementation and delivery of the project,”
said the UAE customer.
“We have a long and successful history of supplying our communications equipment
for mobile ATC towers,” said Patrick Brodda, Managing Director Rohde & Schwarz
Emirates. “This additional order confirms our successful collaboration with the
UAE customer, reaffirming our long-term commitment to our customer.”
The R&S Series4200 has been proven in the field with over 30,000 radios deployed
around the world. The software defined architecture makes the latest release of
the radio compliant with the latest ED-137C standard and a reliable solution for
years to come. CERTIUM VCS is a quad-redundant, IP based voice communications system
that perfectly integrates with the entire CERTIUM portfolio to ensure safe, secure
and efficient airspace operations. As a turnkey supplier for secure aerospace communications
solutions, Rohde & Schwarz brings decades of experience and is a trusted partner.
