Park Air selected to upgrade airspace communications for Chile

Northrop Grumman’s UK-based air traffic communications subsidiary, Park Air Systems Limited, has been selected to upgrade Chile’s airspace communications equipment.

The project will mark the third consecutive time that Park Air has been selected by Dirección General de Aeronáutica Civil (DGAC) to upgrade their equipment to the latest VHF and UHF radios.

Building on the existing use of the T6 Sapphire portfolio within 23 sites across Chilean aerospace, Park Air will upgrade 10 additional sites with the latest voice over internet protocol (VoIP) technology.

The Company will work closely with Aerotech, a leading Chilean company in airport systems as its partner for the contract. Working with local experts better enables improved customer response times and give support and assistance in the local language.

Anais Venet, International Sales Manager for Americas at Park Air, said: “Both Park Air and Aerotech teams have worked well on this project together, providing the customer with a solution they can trust and support that they can rely on.”

Delivery of this solution is possible through the combined efforts of both companies, who will be providing in-territory support as well as installation and decommissioning expertise.
