Romanian air navigation service provider (ANSP) ROMATSA has completed the final site acceptance test of Rohde & Schwarz (R&S) VCS-4G voice communications system for the Bucharest emergency area control centre (ACC), which oversees all Romanian airspace.

Deployed at the end of 2012, VCS-4G provides air-to-ground and ground-to-ground communication services.

R&S VCS-4G also incorporates next-generation ATC requirements, such as asset sharing, facility consolidation, geographical distribution and a virtual centre.

With components spread over several locations in and around Bucharest, the IP-based voice communication system will take over operations in the event of malfunctioning main or standby VCSs deployed at ROMATSA’s ACC.

"Deployed at the end of 2012, VCS-4G provides air-to-ground and ground-to-ground communication services."

The new VCS system allows ROMATSA staff at the emergency ACC to communicate independently with the main and standby VCSs by accessing VoIP radios and control towers across the country.

MFC-R2 lines will be responsible for performing ground-to-ground communication with neighbouring ANSPs, while communication between the emergency systems and the radio / telephony resources will be accessed through the ROMATSA’s IP network infrastructure.

Complying with EUROCAE ED-137 specifications, the fully IP-based R&S VCS-4G voice communications system features several interfaces, while it also allows the scalling up of operations without replacing existing equipment.
