(STL.News) – Northrop Grumman Corporation’s (NYSE: NOC) U.K.-based air traffic communications subsidiary, Park Air Systems Limited, has again been selected to upgrade Chile’s airspace communications equipment. This is the third consecutive time that Park Air has been selected by Dirección General de Aeronáutica Civil (DGAC) to upgrade their equipment to the latest VHF and UHF radios.
Building on the existing use of the Park Air T6 Sapphire portfolio within 23 sites across Chilean aerospace, Park Air will upgrade 10 additional sites with the latest voice over internet protocol (VoIP) technology.
Park Air will work closely with Aerotech, a leading Chilean company in airport systems as its partner for the contract. Working with local experts better enables Park Air to improve customer response times and give support and assistance in the local language. “Both Park Air and Aerotech teams have worked well on this project together, providing the customer with a solution they can trust and support that they can rely on,” said Anais Venet, international sales manager for Americas at Park Air.
The T6 is at the heart of the Park Air Sapphire portfolio, products which are designed to work hand in hand, and flexible enough to suit single radio installations and remote locations, as well as country-wide operations. It gives customers the integration, flexibility and security that they can depend on in today’s air traffic management environment.
Delivery of this solution is possible through the combined efforts of Park Air and Aerotech, who will be providing in-territory support as well as installation and decommissioning expertise.
Northrop Grumman Park Air Systems supplies communication systems for airspace operations worldwide. Sapphire ATM communications systems are installed in more than 50 countries, helping air navigation service providers transitioning into the digital future. In its more than 50 year history, Park Air has sold 60,000 radios in 180 countries around the world.
