[Avionics Magazine 10-07-2016] The U.K.’s Air Navigation Service Provider (ANSP) NATS has designed London Luton’s replacement Voice Communications and Control System (VCCS) that the airport will install as part of a $136 million airport facelift. NATS’ future-proof solution is designed to facilitate the implementation of 8.33 kHz spacing and ED-137B European Organization of Civil Aviation Equipment (EUROCAE) Voice over Internet Protocol (VoIP) to enable interface connectivity with new systems in the future.

Delivered as a complete package comprising VCCS, radio, status monitoring and simulator systems repositioned at new sites and operated as part of an improved communications infrastructure, the NATS equipment provides a clear and effective solution capable of meeting London Luton’s current and future technical and safety requirements.
