Devlet Hava Meydanlari Isletmesi (DHMI), the air navigation service provider (ANSP) of Turkey, has selected Harris, a US-based technology company, to deliver a latest voice-over-internet protocol (VoIP) communication system.
Harris will deploy its new voice communication system for the 21st Century (VCS21) at seven facilities across Turkey, covering more than 337 controller working positions, to support its air traffic management (ATM) services.
By providing net-centric voice communications, VCS21 will help DHMI upgrade its ATM programmes, reduce dependency on traditional point-to-point communications, and enable an efficient transition to IP-based communications.
Changi Airport has ordered a new airfield ground lighting control and monitoring system from Honeywell International.
Honeywell will deploy the system at the airport's runways, taxiways and apron lighting, as well as at facility control and management areas.
The new system will enable the airport to collect real-time data on approach and runway lighting lamp failures, enabling faster repairs. It will also allow pilots to easily navigate the complex surface layouts of modern airports.
Honeywell's computerised control and monitoring system will assist in the operation and observation of lighting installations at the airport.
