Under a contract with Aeronautical Radio of Thailand (AEROTHAI) to deliver voice-over-IP (VoIP)-capable air traffic control (ATC) communications and a remote monitoring and control solution (RCMS) from its CERTIUM portfolio, Rohde & Schwarz has supplied and installed 195 VHF/UHF ATC software-defined radios (SDR) and RCMS II software on a turnkey basis throughout Thailand, in conjunction with local partner W&J Engineering.
The Series4200 and M3SR Series4400 radios are extremely reliable and have been field-proven in thousands of installations, according to the company. The RCMS II is an umbrella-like software solution which enables engineering personnel to monitor CERTIUM radios, voice communication devices and other simple network management protocol (SNMP)-capable components, such as network routers and switches, from one or more locations.
“We have a successful business history in Thailand supporting the avionics sector, and this is another important step in supplying ATC systems to AEROTHAI and reaffirms our long-term commitment to the country,” commented Constantin von Reden, VP Market Segment ATC. “This delivery is a follow-up to supplying over 60 radios the year before. Thailand’s W&J Engineering is a trusted partner on previous projects and will be responsible for installing and commissioning.”
Rohde & Schwarz launched CERTIUM, an advanced ATC communications suite, earlier this year. RCMS II software, CERTUM radios and CERTIUM VCS are cornerstones of this one-stop-shop portfolio. The company is showcasing the CERTIUM portfolio at the ATCA 2020 virtual event, 7-12 December.
