NGC to Provide More Than 1,000 ATC Communication Radios as Part of an IP-based Communications System to India

Northrop Grumman Corporation (NYSE:NOC) has announced that its U.K.-based air traffic management systems subsidiary Park Air Systems has won a contract with Airports Authority of India (AAI) to deliver ground-to-air communications across the country utilising the latest Voice over Internet Protocol (VoIP) communications technology.

Under the contract, Northrop Grumman Park Air Systems will supply more than 500 pairs of air traffic control (ATC) transmitters and receivers that will be integrated into the AAI IP network. The system will comprise the Park Air T6 transmitter and receiver radios, the Park Air S4 remote control units, filters, multicouplers and antennas. The supplied equipment will be interconnected using the internationally agreed VoIP protocol ED-137.


The contract, due for delivery in spring 2015, was won in an internationally competed tender.

"AAI has benefited from Park Air ATC communications equipment for six decades and with this significant order, we can maintain our long-standing presence in India's rapidly growing civil aviation sector," said Charles Houseago, managing director of Northrop Grumman Park Air Systems. "We are pleased to be involved from the outset in AAI's plans to roll out systems employing next-generation technologies, particularly Park Air's advanced IP radio networks that are delivering dependable ATC communications across the Americas, Europe and Asia."
