The international airport of Mosul suffered many damages during the past local war. In order to reactivate and enhance the air traffic in the region and therefore stimulate its economy, the Iraqi government decided for its reconstruction.

The Turkish company TAV – 77 Insaat JV acted as Main Contractor of the project: they have been awarded the important task of not only rebuilding the airport facilities, but also of providing them with the proper means for safe and technologically advanced air traffic control features. SITTI has been asked to provide all what is needed to accomplish the following tasks:

  • an innovative VCS (Voice Communication System)
  • a modern VRS (Voice Recording and Replay System)
  • radio equipment for controller-pilot communication

SITTI is a world market leader in the provision of VCS and VRS systems, both fully compliant with the EUROCAE ED137 standard that defines the way VoIP (Voice over IP) shall be dealt with in the ATC/ATM fields (Air Traffic Control/Management). The system that will be delivered to Mosul includes Controller Working Positions (CWP) for the operators operating in the airport tower. They will be capable of seamlessly accessing both analogue and digital telephone connections, as well as SIP trunks. Similarly, radios of any kind can be linked to the system thanks to appropriate interfaces. The radio equipment will be provided by Jotron, a Norwegian company. Additionally, AFM Group will provide invaluable assistance and on-site installation to support the project.

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