UK-based air traffic communications company Park Air Systems, a subsidiary of Northrop Grumman Corporation (NYSE: NOC), has announced it has supplied and deployed its Sapphire Air Traffic Management (ATM) communication equipment to the Polish airport network run by the Polish Air Navigation Services Agency (PANSA), the company said.
Following the installation of ATM equipment at four remote ground stations (Sieradz, Radom, GÄ bin and Brzesko) in 2017, PANSA has now added almost 30 locations to be equipped with Sapphire ATM communication systems. All of the installations will be completed by the end of 2018.
The Park Air T6 radio is the lightest and smallest radio of its kind in the ATM market. Its size offers greater utility of space as well as lower shipping costs. Combined with a design that makes it the most power efficient available, the complete lack of hazardous materials and a host of other technical features, this new radio meets the most demanding specifications set by airports worldwide.
