Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) accepts 131st Voice Communication System at DFW airport under its interim Voice Switch Replacement IVSR program
The Frequentis 3020X voice communications system for Dallas Fort Worth, Texas (DFW) NextGEN Metroplex has been successfully installed and accepted by the FAA, ahead of schedule. This marks the 131st IVSR system delivered to date.
The FAA and Frequentis worked together to deliver the DFW system without any disruption to normal operation. The Frequentis system comprises 109 controller working positions installed across the airport’s terminal radar approach control facility (TRACON) and its three ATC towers, making it the largest IVSR installed to date.
Behind Chicago and Atlanta, DFW ranks as the third-busiest airport in the United States with 680,000 aircraft movements and 65 million passengers per year. Frequentis USA successfully completed the system’s Formal Qualification Test in March of 2017. Only three months later the system achieved site acceptance on June 23, 2017.
“We are pleased to announce the completion of this important IVSR project ahead of schedule, which highlights our strong partnership with the FAA, enabling us to fulfil their ATC voice switch requirements” says Leonard Swiontek, President of Frequentis USA, Inc.
At its headquarters in Columbia, Maryland, Frequentis USA, Inc. designs, builds and integrates communication and information systems for the FAA, NASA, the Department of Defense, and Public Safety organizations in state and local governments.
