ATC & Coastal Communication Division

Last edited 2018.09.10

The Jotron Group has evolved into one of the most respected names in the air traffic control and coastal communications sectors since the founding of Jotron AS in 1967.

In 1974, Jotron entered the air traffic control market with the launch of the 5000 series VHF receiver. This was quickly followed in 1975 by the development of the innovative Low Level Modulation technology and the launch of the 5000 series VHF transmitter. This was the world’s first product to incorporate the new technology, which is now used by all radio manufacturers.

In 1980, we won our first export contract for air traffic control radios and have since then supplied more than 15,000 radios to the air traffic control market, over 90% of which have been for export markets.

Serving the world of airspace communication for over 40 years, Jotron now offers a state-of-the-art range of high performance VHF and UHF aeronautical band radios for both civil and military air traffic control purposes.

Designed to surpass today’s demanding standards for audio communications, the radios also incorporate the technology required for tomorrow’s demands for digital data transmission modes, including full voice over IP functionality. The range’s unique modular architecture offers the most compact radio system configuration possible, with increased reliability and simplified installation, inspection and maintenance.

Now established as the provider of choice for modern air traffic control systems, Jotron offers both standard and tailor-made solutions, incorporating parts and accessories from blue chip suppliers, to the global market.

Since 2008, Jotron has also been a supplier of coastal radio systems to the world market. Our range of costal radios are based on the highly successful 7000 series air traffic control radio and feature full voice over IP functionality.

Ricochet was acquired by Jotron AS in 2012, and is world-leading in synchronised recording and replay within air traffic control and marine markets. Ricochet has been used in air traffic control with great success for more than 15 years and today there are 500 Ricochet systems installed across the world.

Jotron’s Ricochet captures, replays and analyses all data, ready to deliver the total scenario when reconstruction of an incident is imperative.  The recording solution assists investigatory work - as well as search and rescue operations – and is also of huge benefit to air traffic controllers, supervisors and management for training and quality improvement purposes.

Our global customers now include civil and military aviation authorities, airport operators, airlines and offshore and onshore oil and gas companies.
