Harris Supplies Air Traffic Management System in Turkey
Thursday, February 16, 2017 | Comments

Harris was selected to supply a next-generation VoIP communications system to support the republic of Turkey’s air traffic management (ATM) services. Devlet Hava Meydanlari Isletmesi (DHMI), Turkey’s air navigation service provider (ANSP), conducted the review.

Harris will provide DHMI with its cloud-based Voice Communication System for the 21st Century (VCS21). The system delivers net-centric voice communications that reduce dependency on traditional point-to-point communications, while supporting a transition to IP-based communications. The system will be installed at seven facilities in Turkey and will include more than 337 controller working positions that can access up to 52 radio sites across DHMI control operations.

The system will be part of the Single European Sky ATM Research (SESAR) project, a collaborative initiative to modernize European airspace and air traffic control. DHMI plans to invest in new technologies to enable SESAR and other future concepts. The new technology will enable dynamic rerouting of established flight sectors, provide more reliable contingency planning, and improved asset sharing that facilitates both flexible airspace use and future facility planning.
