Norwegian software company GuardREC, a subsidiary of Hatteland Display, has signed a contract with General Civil Aviation Authority (GCAA) for the supply of a redundant digital recording solution to be used at the area control centre (ACC) and the emergency area control centre (EACC) in Abu Dhabi.
The new guardREC recording solution is a flexible and reliable technology that has been designed particularly for the air traffic control (ATC) market to support all necessary requirements and regulations.
Equipped with latest features and functionalities, the digital recording system sets a new standard in the ATC market.
GuardREC sales manager Rolf Parnemann said: “We are delivering a modern and innovative, state-of-the-art recording solution combined with first-class product stability and seamless installation.
“This contract confirms that our product is on the right track to become the product of choice in the ATC market.”
The guardREC recording solution at Abu Dhabi ACC will enable the synchronous replay of 258 audio channels, 32 screens, 15 CCTV cameras and eight radar feeds.
The technology to be deployed at Abu Dhabi EACC is almost similar to the guardREC solution at the Abu Dhabi ACC.
GCAA assistant director general Ahmed Al Jallaf said: “The new recording solution will enhance the recording capabilities at the Emirates ACC as well as provide seamless and synchronised flight information to assist in ANS related investigations and our advanced safety management system.”
The current project is part of the GCAA’s aim of attaining a leading, safe, secure and sustainable civil aviation system.
In April, the company received an order to provide Glasgow Prestwick International Airport with its guardREC ATC recording solution.
