Park Air System to upgrade Chilean ATC radios
Northrop Grumman’s Park Air Systems is to upgrade Chile’s airspace communications equipment, the company announced on 17 September.
This is the third consecutive time that Park Air has been selected by Dirección General de Aeronáutica Civil (DGAC) to upgrade its equipment to the latest VHF and UHF radios.
The work will build on the existing use of the Park Air T6 Sapphire portfolio by the DGAC, with the upgrade of ten additional sites with the latest voice over internet protocol technology.
The T6 family suits single radio installations and remote locations, as well as country-wide operations for flexible and secure air traffic management operations.
Park Air will work closely with Aerotech, a Chilean airport systems company as its partner for the contract.
