SITTI IN THE SOUTH OF CHINA

Zhanjiang is a big city with more than 7 million people located on the Leizhou peninsula in the South of China, belonging to the Guangdong province. It is an important harbour on the South China Sea and industrial city with large commercial interests.

For the improvement and expansion of the local airport, SITTI has been awarded the supply of a brand new MULTIFONO® M800IP® Voice Communication Solution (VCS), through the very good work and capabilities of our local representative, Beijing XiDi Communication Technology Co., Ltd.

Over the past years, SITTI has been installing a large number of VCS systems throughout China. The new order witnesses the excellent reputation that our company has got in the Far East, thanks to its top level systems, capable of adapting themselves to many different environments and capable of managing the Air Traffic Control of small airfields as well as large ACC centres.

The new VCS has been installed at the local Zhanjiang International Airport for the improvement and increase of the traffic management capacity; the airport has become operative on March 24th. It envisages a set of controller working positions, capable of interfacing both analogue and digital radios and telephone lines, with all the features and facilities available at larger installations.

This allows the system to get all benefits from the native flexibility of its MULTIFONO® IP-based architecture, without losing the possibility of providing full access to all kinds of interfaces and lines. The system is fully complying with the most recent standards issued by EUROCAE in its ED-137, which defined the rules for the use of VoIP (Voice over IP) in the Air Traffic Control and Management fields.

A significant number of analogue and digital radios and telephone lines are interfaced to this system through dedicated gateway cards that convert signalling and voice according to the ED-137 provisions. This allows air traffic controllers to speak to pilots and other operators and make air traffic safer in their area of responsibility.

The new system is seamlessly expandable at any moment in time by simply adding new controller working positions and/or modules. Their configuration can be autonomously carried out by the local staff by means of the supervision and maintenance system, which is also part of the supply: they can be put into operation in a matter of minutes, thus significantly enhancing the air traffic control capabilities of Zhanjiang operators.

SITTI UPGRADE OF CAMBODIA SYSTEMS

The positive reputation that SITTI has accumulated in the past years through the supply of several systems in the Far East region is further witnessed by the award of a new order through Samart Aviation Solutions Public Company Limited (SAV). The new order consists of two new VCSs (Voice Communication System) for the main airports in Cambodia:

  • NPPIA – New Phnom Penh International Airport
  • NSRIA – New Siem Reap International Airport

Both VCSs belong to the M800IP® family of MULTIFONO ® systems, which implement the latest provisions defined by the most recent international standards issued by the competent bodies, like the EUROCAE ED 137 standard. This latter defines the way the VOIP technology (Voice over IP) is used in the Air Traffic Control (ATC) field.

The end customer is the national ANSP, Cambodia Air Traffic Services (CATS) that is responsible for the proper handling of flights in the Cambodian airspace. Each system encompasses 4 controller working positions connected to a significant number of VOIP radio channels and telephone lines.

The systems are also equipped with radio and telephone gateways for interfacing analogue connections to the new VOIP based network. Best Signal Selection (BSS) modules allow proper management of distributed radio frequencies to present controllers the best received audio.

SITTI is a primary VCS manufacturer and supplier worldwide, capable of giving prompt and top edge solutions to Customer needs, both in the Civilian and Military fields. The leading edge, redundant, non-blocking architecture of the MULTIFONO® M800IP® provides flexibility and modularity for easy expansion and addition of further functionalities.

SITTI VCSs AND ERAD TO MALAYSIA

In the frame of a commercial cooperation with LEONARDO, SITTI is going to provide Malaysia with new VCSs (Voice Communication Systems) and Emergency Radio Access Devices. More specifically, the new installations are relevant to the Kuala Lumpur Air Traffic Control Centre (KL-ATCC), the local Disaster Recovery (DR) facility and the control tower at Subang.

The new VCS systems are the most technologically advanced solution available on the market, fully compliant to the latest international standard in the field of air management and control, especially focusing on EUROCAE ED 137. This document defines the rules and protocols to use VoIP (Voice over IP) in the air management context, all over the world.

The Main Operatioanl System (MOS) at Kuala Lumpur is the largest among the systems provided to Malaysia, with 52 new controller working positions (CWP), from which controllers have full and possibly simultaneous access to almost 400 radio channels and more than 100 analogue and SIP telephone lines. The Disaster Recovery system is used as a contingency system, in case for any reason the MOS is unavailable; it has the same interface capabilities and around 40 new CWPs.

Moreover all the existing SITTI TDM-VCS have been upgraded in order to be integrated to KL-ATCC with VoIP radio and telephone connections over MPLS network.

Besides the supply of the above mentioned VCSs, SITTI is also delivering a significant number of so-called Emergency Radio Access Devices (ERAD), as last resort resources for the access to remote transceivers. These devices are air traffic control terminals, designed by SITTI as a powerful, flexible and cost-effective solution to ensure continuity of radio and telephone communications in the event of an emergency. Thanks to its all-in-one architecture, it is completely independent of the existing VCS network and is able to guarantee reliable communication with remote devices, even if the main system is out of order.

ERAD consists of an integrated operative position and associated electro-acoustical devices (PTT, microphone, loudspeaker), giving access to communication features through a 7 inch touchscreen panel, through which the operator can connect to any local and remote radio and telephone device

SITTI is a primary VCS manufacturer and supplier worldwide, capable of giving prompt and top edge solutions to Customer needs, both in the Civilian and Military fields. The leading edge, redundant, non-blocking architecture of the MULTIFONO® M800IP® provides flexibility and modularity for easy expansion and addition of further functionalities.

Leonardo is among the top world players in Aerospace, Defense and Security. The company, through the joint venture AAT (Advanced Air Traffic Systems) and the Civil Aviation Authority Malaysia (CAAM), is responsible of the KL ATTCC (New Kuala Lumpur Air Traffic Control Centre) program, which aims to enhance the management of Malaysian airspace.

SITTI LANDS ON THE HAINAN ISLAND

Haikou is the main city on the isle of Hainan, in the south of China. It is the most populated city on the island with almost 2 million people. For the improvement and expansion of the local airport, SITTI has been awarded the supply of a brand new MULTIFONO® M800IP® Voice Communication Solution (VCS), through the very good work and capabilities of our local representative, Beijing XiDi Communication Technology Co., Ltd.

The new order coming from this big country underlines and makes explicit the excellent reputation that our company has gained in the Far East, thanks to its top level systems, capable of adapting themselves to many different environments and capable of managing the Air Traffic Control of small airfields as well as large ACC centres.

The new VCS has been thought for the improvement and increase of the traffic management capacity of the local Haikou Meilan International Airport. It envisages a set of controller working positions, capable of interfacing both analogue and digital radios and telephone lines, with all the features and facilities available at larger installations.

This allows the system to get all benefits from the native straightforward flexibility of its MULTIFONO® IP-based architecture, without losing the possibility of providing full access to all kinds of interfaces and lines.
