Northrop Grumman has won a contract to help the Brazilian Airspace Control System Implementation Commission upgrade air traffic communication systems in the country.
The company’s Park Air Systems subsidiary will work to move the current communication system of the Integrated Center for Air Defense and Air Traffic Control 3 airspace region into an Internet Protocol-based platform that will include the Park Air turnkey communication tools, Northrop said Friday.
Charles Houseago, managing director at Northrop Grumman Park Air Systems, said the company intends for the communications services to meet the region’s air traffic management requirements.
Northrop will install more than 1,500 Park Air radios at 30 locations in the region and consolidate new and legacy systems.
ATC Systems will perform infrastructure work, installation, training and technical services.
