Vietnam Air Traffic Management Corporation (VATM) has contracted Rohde & Schwarz to equip nine regional towers throughout the country with reliable communications solution.

As part of the agreement, Rohde & Schwarz will provide the R&S Series5200 air traffic control (ATC) radio, as well as its CERTIUM VCS-4G – IP based voice communications system (VCS).

“Rohde & Schwarz is proud to provide VATM with the latest communications technology,” said Marium Munstermann, VP ATC at Rohde & Schwarz. “We have a long and successful relationship with our Vietnamese customer. From the controller working position to the antenna, our integrated all-in-one, IP based solution gives VATM highly secure, safe and reliable ATC communications with excellent RF performance.

The new R&S Series5200 radios represent the next generation of VHF and UHF radios for ATC communications, increasing system reliability with a new security-by-design architecture to make air travel even more secure. The radios are future-proof; later system expansions will require no additional hardware thanks to the software defined radio concept.

Both the VCS system and the Series 5200 ATC radio are part of Rohde & Schwarz’s CERTIUM, an advanced communications suite for ATC from the microphone to the antenna.
