bristol-airportOver the next 12 months, NATS Services Ltd will replace Bristol’s Voice Communications System (VCS) in an overhaul of the bespoke system that allows air traffic controllers in the airport tower to communicate with the aircraft and vehicles under their management.

 

NATS is developing, designing and installing the new VCS system, built around the IP-based Frequentis 3020X VCS and Jotron transmitters and receivers, to provide a clear and effective solution capable of meeting Bristol Airport’s current and future technical requirements.

 

Placed around the airfield and in the tower itself, the new state-of-the-art equipment not only enhances voice clarity and brings the airport up-to-date with the latest technology but also ensures the system is well-placed to connect with technological advances of the future.

 

Pete Glass, NATS General Manager Air Traffic Services at Bristol Airport, said: “NATS is very excited to have won this important contract. We have an excellent customer relationship with Bristol Airport and we’re pleased to have been asked to replace one of the key pieces of equipment in the tower – it’s a significant success for our engineering team, and one that is testament to great teamwork backed by our wealth of industry expertise.”
