Nudhum is now in a final stages of delivering a sophisticated Mobile Air Traffic Control Tower to the Saudi Air Navigation Services in Saudi Arabia.
The Saudi Air Navigation Services Co. (SANS) has chosen Nudhum to provide a deployable mobile tower to support its air traffic control (ATC) modernisation program.
Initially one mobile tower container will be provided, allowing SANS the flexibility to operate the mobile tower as a contingency solution or during any update work.
The mobile tower for SANS will include the Frequentis Voice Communication System, VCS3020X, and provide integration with legacy systems. Operator working positions will be mounted on the mobile tower consoles and the system will have a capacity for 72 voice channels.
“We are pleased to be working with SANS again, supporting them in their goals for modernised tower services. Mobile tower containers allow ANSPs to operate a temporary tower solution if a regular ATC tower is undergoing maintenance or repair, saving passenger disruption, it also provides a contingency solution if required.”, says
Frequentis Vice President ATM Civil …Hannu Juurakko.
Nudhum is currently working with several Air Navigation Services solution projects at Saudi Arabian awith both Military and Civil aviation to enhance Air Traffic Services. With the addition of a deployable mobile tower SANS will increase the flexibility of their air traffic services during its modernisation.
Shipment of the mobile tower is planned for end of 2019. Integration will be carried out by Nudhum Al-Oula, Twist, Frequentis and ParkAir Systems.
