Rohde & Schwarz IP-based Voice Communications System went live for New Zealand air traffic controllers
Airways and New Zealand are reaping the benefits of a new air traffic control (ATC) IP-based voice communication system following the successful ‘go-live’ on 29th October 2023.
“CERTIUM VCS is enhancing Airways’ flexibility to manage their operations consistently across the country,” Managing Director of Rohde & Schwarz Australia, Gareth Evans said.
The system’s IP design and quad-redundant, distributed architecture enables voice communications to operate seamlessly across multiple locations.
“Being based both in the North and the South Islands, the system is highly resilient, with the capacity to transfer airspace control between a control centre and its local contingency centre,” Mr Evans said.
Tranche 2 of the project will see Rohde & Schwarz and Airways extend the new system to towers across the New Zealand ATC network, and Rohde & Schwarz Australia will continue to provide support and maintenance under a 15-year contract.
