US-based company Harris has been chosen to deliver a latest voice-over-internet protocol (VoIP) communication system to support the air traffic management (ATM) services of the Republic of Turkey.

The air navigation service provider (ANSP) of Turkey, Devlet Hava Meydanlari Isletmesi (DHMI), has selected Harris after a rigorous review.

Under the deal, the company will deliver its new voice communication system for the 21st Century (VCS21) to DHMI.

The VCS21 will help the ANSP upgrade its ATM programmes by providing net-centric voice communications that not only reduces dependency on traditional point-to-point communications but also enables an efficient transition to IP-based communications.

"The Harris VCS21 system is now supporting three of the world’s premiere ANSPs, Turkey’s DHMI, the UK NATS, and the US FAA, that are at the forefront of modernising ATM worldwide."

Harris will deploy its system at seven facilities across Turkey, which will cover more than 337 controller working positions able to access up to 52 radio sites throughout DHMI control operations.

Harris Mission Networks president Ed Sayadian said: “The Harris VCS21 system is now supporting three of the world’s premiere ANSPs, Turkey’s DHMI, the UK NATS, and the US FAA, that are at the forefront of modernising ATM worldwide.

“VCS21 will be a key enabler of ATM modernisation and growth worldwide.”

The new Harris VCS21 system will be part of the Single European Sky ATM Research (SESAR) project, a collaborative initiative taken to upgrade European airspace and air traffic control (ATC).

As part of the SESAR project, the technology will facilitate dynamic re-routing of established flight sectors, offer enhanced reliable contingency planning, as well as improve asset sharing that allows both flexible airspace use and future facility planning.
