Park Air Systems has received a contract from the NATO Communications and Information Agency (NCIA) to supply a new communication system to Golubovci Airbase in Podgorica, Montenegro.

Park Air Systems is the UK-based air traffic management (ATM) subsidiary of Northrop Grumman.

The M7 VHF/UHF radio features a range of receivers and transceivers, each covering the full VHF/UHF frequency range with AM and FM waveforms for fixed, naval and transportable applications. The radio provides high level of performance, resilience and flexibility in a compact unit for defence applications.

The system also features electronic protection measures, including NATO and non-NATO waveforms. Its wideband interfaces support a range of crypto devices and tactical data links.

The new ATM communications system will support the Montenegro armed forces. Delivery completed in late 2017.

Danny Milligan, managing director, Northrop Grumman Park Air Systems, said: ‘Our ability to meet the tender criteria by providing the highest quality radio and after sales support has meant that Park Air could offer the ideal partnership for this important programme.

'The tender from NCIA was based on full compliance of the equipment to stringent international standards. The Park Air M7 is a tried and tested military radio used by many defence forces around the world.’
