DAMM is a leading provider of rugged, reliable, and easily scalable terrestrial trunked radio (TETRA) voice and data communications.

The company has been a key player for more than 30 years within professional radio communication. DAMM is taking the lead in TETRA technology through superior engineering and a constant focus on customer needs and the reduction of complexity

Specialists in voice and data communications in the airport sector

Through cooperation with leading airport providers worldwide, DAMM understands the critical importance of communications within transport infrastructures.

DAMM’s TetraFlex® solution delivers high-performance and feature-rich digital TETRA voice and data communications, providing crucial communications integration across all airport functions for increased efficiency and optimised safety.

Optimised installation for airport requirements

The compact TetraFlex IP65 encapsulated and ruggedised outdoor base station has been optimised for use across the entirety of airport sites. It is ideally suited for use in adverse environments, and can be mounted directly on buildings or masts, saving significantly on installation costs.

Intelligent networks resulting in minimal downtime of systems

The TetraFlex solution has minimal downtime due to full redundancy of components, critical system information, and the system’s intelligent distributed network architecture.

If a site loses connection to the rest of the network, there is no cause for alarm. All information is constantly replicated to every site in the network, allowing call and data traffic to continue uninterrupted.

Complete coverage and scalability across entire airport networks

Airport operations, airline staff, and emergency units can all be linked through the intergrated communications created as a result of the fully IP-based technology used by TetraFlex digital voice and date communications solutions.

This enhances efficiency and safety, and also gives full flexibility in site and capacity expansions, even during operation.

High-quality private and group telephony communications

Groups and staff teams can easily be coordinated; defined through user input. The highly flexible voice communication services support individual private calls, group calls, telephony communications (PSTN), and more, always with crystal-clear voice quality, even in the noisiest areas.

For emergency incidents, the system provides emergency calls, man-down facilities and override functions.

Efficient SCADA and telemetry data communication services

TetraFlex data services provide data used to achieve operational efficiency in, for example, resource management through the simple exchange of status messaging without the need for additional bandwidth.

It also enables supervisory control and data acquisition (SCADA) and telemetry data to be used for reporting alarms and failures, or collecting data for improving operational performances in support of third-party applications.

Increased operational performance as a result of embedded software applications

Voice and data recording and replay can be performed using TetraFlex, enabling effortless incident reconstructions and gathering valuable statistics on operational performance.

Users can also easily be dispatched by the operational centres through use of TetraFlex’s dispatcher solution.

Unlimited third-party application accessibility

TetraFlex is fitted with an accessible application programming interface (API) allowing for straightforward development and integration of existing or customer-designed airport applications, such as workflow management or the airport flight information database.
