The Romanian air navigation service provider ROMATSA has upgraded the voice communications system (VCS) at Bucharest Otopeni Airport in Romania with the latest version of CERTIUM VCS-4G from Rohde & Schwarz.
The airport’s current VCS system has been in operation since the late 2000s and was the first fully IP VCS used in an ATC Tower. The upgrade, which will be applied to both the operational and simulator systems, will preserve legacy line connections, improve operational capabilities and increase safety thanks to a fully ED-137B compliant VCS and a fully distributed non-blocking architecture with 17 standard and 11 compact controller working positions (CWP).
“We are pleased to continue our collaboration with the Rohde & Schwarz Center of Competence for VDS as an innovative and reliable partner,” said Cosmin Dumitrescu, Technical Director, ROMATSA. “We are receiving proven, state-of-the-art technology in a highly advanced system solution, designed to meet next generation ATC communications requirements.”
