DAMM Supplies TETRA Radio System for Indian Airport
Tuesday, September 01, 2020 | Comments

The Airport Authority of India (AAI) has chosen a DAMM TetraFlex radio system for secure mission-critical radio communications for Chaudhary Charan Singh International Airport at Lucknow in the northern region of India.

The Chaudhary Charan Singh International Airport is the 11th busiest airport in the country and has seen passenger traffic grow at an exponential rate, clocking a compound annual growth rate of 19.6% since 2008.

The current remodeling of the airport includes construction of a world-class passenger terminal as well as associated infrastructure, with an integrated terminal area of 84,000 square meters and a retail area of more than 15,000 square meters. Once the new integrated T3 terminal building is operational, the airport will be able to handle around 14.4 million passengers a year, an increase of almost 230% in capacity compared to the present 4.4 million annual passengers.

“The Lucknow airport project is a really exciting project for us and reinforces our strong position to provide a modern, futureproof solution for a state-of-the-art airport,” said Carsten Laursen, regional director at DAMM.

The redundant DAMM TetraFlex system will be deployed across the airport operation. It will primarily be used for the airport’s security, operations and maintenance users to secure passengers’ safety with a reliable mission-critical voice and data communication system.

The engineering, procurement and construction (EPC) contractor for the project is NCC Limited. DAMM’s Authorized System Partner Consort Digital will provide project engineering services to NCC for supply, provisioning and support of the TETRA radio system.

Features of the system include fully IP base; fully redundant configuration; secure, reliable low-noise TETRA communications; compliance with the open TETRA standard, ensuring multivendor terminal support; integrated voice and data logging for storage and playback; gateways for interconnection to private branch exchange (PBX) and conventional networks; provision to integrate into smartphones for designated users using the DAMM TetraFlex push-to-talk (PTT) application; and easy integration, installation, commissioning and maintenance.
