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.
