Voice Switch for Air Traffic Control Units

Replace Existing Systems with Newer or Different System


The project will modernize legacy switches that manage and integrate all voice communications within the Air Traffic Control (ATC) units at Royal Canadian Air Force (RCAF) Wings.


ATC voice switches are required to interface with, control, and manage radio nets, intercoms, hot lines, conference lines, and telephone networks. Requirements will be tailored to meet the provision of air traffic services to military and civilian aircraft.
