    Northrop Grumman to Expand Communications System Capability at World's Busiest Airport, UAE

    LONDON, March 8, 2016 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Northrop Grumman Corporation (NYSE:NOC) announced that its U.K.-based subsidiary, Northrop Grumman Park Air Systems, is expanding the capability of the air traffic control (ATC) communication systems at Dubai International (DXB), the world's busiest international airport, and Dubai World Central (DWC) airport, United Arab Emirates (UAE).

    Under the terms of the contract awarded to Bayanat Engineering UAE, Dubai Air Navigation Services (DANS) will receive Park Air Sapphire portfolio products, including its latest Park Air T6 Radio at five radio sites located at each airport. The system will simultaneously support both legacy E1 and Voice over IP (VoIP) connectivity, enabling radio channels to be connected to a network of Park Air S4 IP Controllers, while also connecting to the airports' legacy voice switch.

    The Park Air T6 Radio, an integral part of the Sapphire portfolio, will provide DANS with Simultaneous Call Transmission (SCT) detection. With SCT, the T6 Radio receiver detects two pilots speaking at the same time and sends an alert to the air traffic controller to take the appropriate action.
