2 Aviation Firms Win Contracts for ESN Aircraft Device Testing
Wednesday, June 10, 2020 | Comments

The Home Office awarded Specialist Aviation Services and Gama Aviation contracts to complete transmitting portable electronic devices (TPED) testing on several emergency services aircraft in line with its delivery of the new Emergency Services Network (ESN).

ESN is the next generation of critical communications for the three U.K. emergency services and other user organizations. One element of ESN is the development of an LTE air-to-ground (A2G) network and aircraft communications system (ACS).

TPED contracts facilitate early electromagnetic compatibility (EMC) testing on emergency services aircraft in preparation for ACS installation.

The Home Office engaged both Specialist Aviation Services and Gama Aviation to complete this testing on a number of different aircraft to gain approval from the European Union Aviation Safety Agency (EASA).

Both contracts were awarded from April 2020 – April 2021.

“We are delighted to win another contract with the U.K. government,” said Scott McVicar, managing director for Europe ground at Gama Aviation. “I believe this demonstrates our continued ability to deliver appropriate solutions across a wide variety of current and future mission for the UK’s emergency services.”

Gama Aviation provides mission-critical aviation and support services globally in the business aviation, air ambulance, law enforcement, infrastructure monitoring and defense sectors.
