Date 08.08.2011

The contract is signed with Sloveniacontrol, Slovenian Air Navigation Services Ltd. Leading technology provider, Ricochet AS, will record and replay 19 screens of 2k x 2k resolution and 256 audio sources at the new ATCC in Ljubljana, Slovenia. All recording units at the ATCC and 3 local airports have the possibility to be remotely configured, monitored and administered from a workstation through centralized management.

In the new generation Ricochet system, the modular architecture makes it easier than ever to create and maintain a large, distributed system of Ricochet recording units. Any number of autonomous recording units can be integrated using the replay server/manager and administration server/manager architecture. This means that Ricochet’s client application provides system-wide access to replay and administration via one access point. Channels recorded on different recorders are presented seamlessly to the user.

Sloveniacontrol, Slovenian Air Navigation Services Ltd. performs services for ATC, flight data and flight telecommunication. In 2009, the company purchased and implemented Ricochet’s systems for recording and replaying of ground-ground and air-ground communications at several locations in Slovenia.

Sloveniacontrol, Slovenian Air Navigation Services Ltd. currently operates from its ATCC in Ljubljana, but the centre will be moved to a new building location at the airport Joze Pučnik. Screen and audio recording and installations for centralized management are the second phase of the project. When the new ATCC is equipped and ready for operation, there will be a shadow operation of the two centers and the existing ATCC will finally be deactivated.

“We are happy to start this second phase of the Ljubljana ATCC project,” says Mr. Jure Locniskar at Sloveniacontrol Ltd. “Ricochet’s advanced system solution will help controllers to effectively manage air traffic control with a high degree of confidence.”

“Ricochet is setting standards for screen recording and centralized ATC management," says Mr. Oddmund Johansen, President & CEO, Ricochet AS. “We are quite pleased that Sloveniacontrol, Slovenian Air Navigation Services Ltd. has further confirmed the success of Ricochet’s state-of-the-art technology.”
