Air traffic control communications

For over 30 years, Selex ES has been a leader in the supply of turn-key systems for voice and data communications between the pilot and controller to ensure effective air traffic control.

Selex ES’s range of capabilities in ground systems for air traffic control encompasses the design, manufacturing and marketing of a wide range of equipment and integrated systems to be installed on various ground control centres. The company offers products and systems to satisfy ground-to-air communications (both voice and data), surveillance and network management needs.

Selex ES’s third-generation radio base stations provide customers with a multi-mode communication system, able to communicate using various voice and data modes simultaneously. This allows increased operation effectiveness, in compliance with the standard established by the International Civil Aviation Organisation (ICAO).

Ground communications

Selex ES provides secure and resilient communication solutions to support both airport ground logistics activities (maintenance services, baggage services, aircraft fuelling, ramp services, airport movements) and airport ground emergency and security activities (fire brigades, police and security operations).

Among others, the following features can be implemented through a multi-technology Selex ES ground communication network:

  • Voice and data communication
  • Real-time resource positioning (both vehicles and people)
  • Groups co-ordination
