Jotron completes Hungary's radio renewal

Jotron has completed the third and final phase of HungaroControl’s comprehensive three phase radio upgrade programme.

Jotron started working on the project in 2011 and since then, has been the prime contractor on the modernisation initiative.

Jotron offers a complete range of radio communication equipment from complex integrated systems to stand-alone radio solutions.
In addition to delivering upgraded radios at Budapest ANS centre (for ACC, APP and MIL services), Jotron also supplied turnkey radio systems to remote radio sites, including equipment cabinets, shelters and local installation tasks.
Hungary is now equipped with Jotron 7000 VHF and UHF radios capable for VoIP operations. The state of the art technology of these radios meets all ground to air communication requirements for ATC usage.
“We are excited to use the top notch and proven radio communication technology provided by Jotron. All systems were delivered on time and in accordance with our technical and operational requirements,” said Barnabas Kis, chief technology officer of HungaroControl.
“HungaroControl will benefit from a fully IP-capable and easy to operate radio system. The possibility to monitor and control remote radio sites from their ANS center in Budapest will be time and cost efficient,” said Roar Flaatnes, marketing director at Jotron ATC & Coastal Communication Division.
