NorthropGrummanLogoA Northrop Grumman subsidiary has developed a new Internet Protocol-based radio communications network for air traffic controllers to communicate with aircraft, the company said Monday.

Park Air Systems, Northrop’s air traffic management systems subsidiary in Europe, built the very high frequency system for Uruguay’s national aviation agency under a contract with INDRA.

“I am delighted that our air traffic control communications equipment was chosen for this pioneering project,” said Charles Houseago, managing director of Park Air Systems in the U.K. “We have enjoyed working with Direccion Nacional de Aviacion Civil e Infraestructura Aeronautica and INDRA.”

Uruguay has deployed 86 of the radios at eight sites and Northrop said the radios have been operational for several weeks.

DINACIA installed the IP network in an attempt to interconnect the sites and control center, Northrop said.

Uruguay used standards developed by the European Organisation for Civil Aviation Equipment to deploy the voice over IP system and Park Air Systems is a member of the organization.
