French Airport Simulation Tests Communications, Gateway
Thursday, April 05, 2018 | Comments

French firm Sysoco tested a gateway radio solution ahead of a planned rollout at Lyon-Bron Airport and Lyon Saint-Exupery in France.

Sysoco took part in a rapid intervention exercise to demonstrate the synchronization of communications between the Fire and Rescue services (SSLIA), the Fire and Rescue Service of Rhone-Alpes, and fuel company Total.

The simulation scenario involved attending the scene of an accident between an airplane and a fully laden fuel tanker. The scenario day was set up to test the level of communications coordination between the services during an emergency. The event also tested Sysoco’s new gateway solution, based on Sepura SRG3900s, which enables extended communications coverage between ground teams and command and control.

In the exercise, Sysoco used the Sepura SRG3900 from the firefighter’s command post vehicle as a gateway to enable communications in local mode between all portable radios within a 1-to-2-kilometer radius. Sysoco used the gateway from the firefighter’s command post vehicle to enable communications in local mode between all portable radios within a 1- to 2-kilometer radius, dependent on the relief and height of the antenna on a telescopic tower.

The use of gateway radios allows Aeroports de Lyon to run a system that links the SSLIA to the command post of the Saint-Exupery Airport. Sysoco’s gateway solution will provide coverage into neighboring areas of the airport and support nearby Lyon Saint-Exupery airport thanks to the 12-meter high telescopic tower.

Following a successful test day, both Lyon-Bron and Lyon Saint-Exupery airport have better coverage in the case of emergencies, a statement said.
