Northrop Grumman’s UK-based subsidiary, Park Air Systems, has been contracted by AME Air Traffic Management to provide air traffic control (ATC) communication systems equipment across airports in South Africa.

As part of the deal, a total of 50 major South African airports will receive Park Air T6 Radio solutions, including more than 550 very-high frequency (VHF) units, which will improve the country’s ATC communication systems.

Park Air Systems will also provide remote control and monitoring system (RCMS), a multi-access remote control (MARC) server, integrated cabinets, cavity filters and controllers.

"The new systems will replace the current Park Air systems installed at the airports in 1997."

“20 years is a long time to sustain top-tier performance. We are delighted the customer has the confidence we can do the same for the next 20 years.”
