Harris introduces VCS21™—a global, next-generation Voice over Internet Protocol (VoIP) communication system designed for Air Traffic Management (ATM) communications. The new offering is part of the Harris VCS21™ family. Its network-centric approach, replaces proprietary, Time-Division Multiplexing (TDM) communications hardware with standards-based, VoIP-enabled voice nodes, reduces dependency on traditional point-to-point communications. The product was generated from proven ATC Algorithms with over 18+ million systems hours of combined operation in more than 50 countries.
Some key features include:
Scalability to support one to 800+ controller working positions
Designed to exceed 0.999999 of network availability
ED-137 specification compliant
Lowers operating costs by reducing systems, spares, and integration
Supports dynamic re-sectorization, resource allocation, workload balancing, and airspace design
Additionally, VCS21™ allows net-centric and legacy voice systems to coexist, enabling a seamless transition during ATC modernization programs of virtually any size and complexity, from small, single-tower installations to national and multinational voice enterprise systems. The system operates as a fully networked voice enterprise, enabling enhanced capabilities for business continuity planning, asset sharing and future facilities.
The product was recently selected by the FAA to enable their National Voice Switch program.
