Harris Corporation to Upgrade Air Traffic Control Communication Systems in Indonesia

MELBOURNE, Fla. & GATINEAU, Quebec--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Harris Corporation (NYSE:HRS), an international communications and information technology company, has been awarded two contracts to modernize the air traffic control systems (ATC) at two regional airports in Indonesia.

“These two cities represent very important economic engines for Indonesia”

Harris will supply its Liberty-STAR™ Voice Communication and Control System (VCCS) to the Ngurah Rai International Airport in Bali and the Sepinggan International Airport in Balikpapan. Liberty-STAR™ VCCS features a modular architecture, open-platform software and commercial-off-the-shelf hardware that delivers a reliable, scalable communications solution for ATC towers, airline and area control dispatch, flight service stations, and mobile shelters.

The Ngurah Rai International Airport and Sepinggan International Airport systems will be equipped with touch-screen operator positions, radio interfaces, telephone interfaces, and a System Maintenance, Administration and Reconfiguration Terminal (SMART) POSITION™. Harris also will install and provide operation and maintenance training for Indonesian air traffic controllers and technical staff.

“These two cities represent very important economic engines for Indonesia,” said John O'Sullivan, vice president, Mission Critical Networks, Harris Corporation. “Sustainable economic growth ultimately depends on how successful Indonesia’s airports are, and providing them with advanced mission-critical communications is a step in that direction.”

Harris has extensive experience developing mission-critical solutions that support civil and military ATC operations worldwide, including more than 200 customers in 50 countries. While these are the company’s first ATC communications contracts in Indonesia, Harris has supplied communications systems for a wide range of countries in the region, including the Philippines, Vietnam, Thailand, and Taiwan.
