ACAMS recently supplied ERC2 radio panels for the UK NATS, as part of an overall project worth approximately $35 million that will help modernise all voice communication systems and VHF/UHF radio facilities within the NATS communication infrastructure structure.
The ERC2 concept was developed for Avinor and Norwegian airports as a simple, safe and cost-effective solution and alternative to a full back-up VCCS. ACAMS provides the ERC2 to NATS as subcontractor to Park Air Systems, as part of their alternative access system (AAS) in the overall system solution for UK NATS.
The ERC2 sub-contract calls for more than 650 ERC2 units and represents a significant contract for ACAMS. The fact that the ERC2 COTS product has passed the stringent safety requirements of NATS is a quality proof for the company and has given it valuable experience in enhanced safety analysis, and documentation.
ACAMS ERC2 are panels for providing air traffic controllers with alternative access to the A/G radio resources in case of VCCS failures. We are looking forward to see the ERC2 panels operational in the UK area control centres.
