Harris Delivers VoIP to National Airspace System (7/17/12)
Harris delivered the first operational VoIP radio control capability into the National Airspace System (NAS). VoIP is an enabler of the agency’s evolution toward NextGen, a wide-ranging transformation of the entire U.S. air transport system.
The Harris Liberty radio control equipment (RCE) is operational at the Federal Aviation Administration’s (FAA’s) air route traffic control center in Houston, which provides air/ground radio communications for the Gulf of Mexico, including remote oil platforms.
Liberty RCE can emulate virtually any radio link and offers radio control over a variety of transmission mediums, making it ideal for communications to isolated areas where digital services compatible with satellite communications are sparse, and reliance on legacy links and older analog technology is often the norm. The technology was selected as an interim solution after the FAA encountered technical issues operating legacy RCE while deploying a remote air/ground communications facility on the oil platform Independence Hub in the Gulf of Mexico.
