India to receive VoIP based ground-to-air VHF communication solution from Jotron

Jotron – a manufacturer of professional communication systems for land, sea and air safety – has been awarded a contract by Airport Authority of India (AAI).

The company will supply IP based VHF transmitters, VHF receivers, VHF remote control units, VHF antennas and associated accessories.

Jotron entered the air traffic control (ATC) market in 1974 and has established itself as a provider of choice for modern ATC systems.

The radios to AAI are based on ED-137 VoIP protocol, however, they will be able to utilise existing analogue infrastructure in parallel. Stand-alone remote-control units capable of efficiently operating Jotron radios both via an analogue or IP connection, will also be provided.

“This contract is of great importance to us. We are very proud to be part of the Indian Air Traffic Control modernization program. This project will provide valuable experience to all parties involved,” says Nenad Jankovic, international sales manager, ATC and coastal communication division at Jotron AS.

“We hope that other customers in Asia will follow suit and benefit from our technologically advanced equipment.”
