UK air traffic control provider NATS chooses Rohde & Schwarz for Second Voice System

NATS has selected the R&S VCS-4G IP-based voice communications system from Rohde & Schwarz as its second voice system for its air traffic control (ATC) communications in UK airspace, the company said.

Within the framework of the Single European Sky (SES) initiative, NATS will modernize its entire air traffic management (ATM) infrastructure over the next few years.

Rohde & Schwarz will begin the implementation of the second voice system in 2017. It will provide enhanced resilience for voice based radio communications in UK airspace.

Rohde & Schwarz provides fully VoIP-based R&S VCS-4G, featuring a distributed, redundant architecture.
