northrop grumman logoA Northrop Grumman subsidiary has won a contract with the Dutch Caribbean Air Navigation Service Provider to deploy a communication system for pilots and ground personnel in the Curacao region.

U.K.-based Park Air Systems will install radios atop  Curacao island’s Seru Gracia, where flights between North and South America pass by, Northrop Grumman said Thursday.

Northrop Grumman first surveyed the location, determined the coverage and provided 200W T6 VHF radios as part of the ground-to-air communication system.

The system includes up to 300W of transmitters, mast-head amplifiers and high-gain antenna arrays, the same equipment that serveGreenland in the North Atlantic, the Bay of Bengal,  and the Arabian Gulf, the South China Sea and Canada’s Hudson Bay.

Northrop Grumman Park Air Systems showcased its airport real-time collaboration technology at the Civil Air Navigation Services Organisation’s Latin America and Caribbean Conference in Curacao on Friday.
