Press release: Jotron successfully completed radio renewal project for the Hungarian airspace

Jotron AS, a leading manufacturer of professional communication systems for land, sea and air safety, entered into a contract with HungaroControl in 2011. Since then, Jotron has been the prime contractor for HungaroControl's comprehensive three phase radio upgrade program.

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 center (for ACC, APP and MIL services), Jotron also supplied turn-key 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.

Jotron completed the third and final phase of this project in July 2016, contributing significantly to an improvement of Hungary’s ATC services, supporting HungaroControl’s safety-critical work.

“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,” says Barnabas Kis, Chief Technology Officer of HungaroControl.

“Jotron is pleased to have been given the opportunity to assist in the modernization of air traffic control in Hungary. 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,” says Roar Flaatnes, Sales & Marketing Director at Jotron ATC & Coastal Communication Division.
