VHF / UHF Radios for Air Traffic Control
Jotron 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.
Jotron offers a state-of-the-art range of high performance VHF and UHF radios for both civil and military air traffic control purposes.
Jotron’s radios incorporate the technology required for tomorrow’s demands for digital data transmission modes, including full voice over IP functionality.
The unique modular architecture offers the most compact radio system configuration possible, with increased reliability and simplified installation, inspection and maintenance.
Jotron offers both standard and tailor-made solutions. The radios are fully integrated with Ricochet ATC Recording and Replay System.
Since 2008, Jotron has also been a supplier of coastal radio systems to the world market.
VHF AM Multimode Radio
The Jotron 7000 series VHF Multimode Digital Radio, combines excellent RF performance in congested areas, with advanced digital signalling technique, to cover the future radio communication needs for civilian authorities.
Totally controlled by an ultra fast digital signal processor, makes the radio the ultimate choice for all professional ground to air communication, with easy control, no internal tuneable parts and improved reliability.
The 7000 series comprises the TR-7750 Transceiver, the RA-7203 Receiver and the TA-7650 Transmitter. Carefully designed to be the most compact and lightest radio available, and the complete modular assembly, enable a variety of configuration possibilities, according to customer specific requirements.
UHF AM Digital Radio
Jotron series 7000 UHF digital radios are designed to provide ground to air communication for professional users in the air defence frequency range. The radios provide excellent audio performance together with unmatched RF performance in tough electromagnetic environments. Voice over IP, AM and FM modulation, remote control via SNMP and high MTBF are factors that make this a necessary tool for the professional market.
UHF and VHF Power Amplifiers
Jotron has developed its own range of VHF and UHF power amplifiers. Using state-of-the art technology, the amplifiers are designed with internal gain loop, providing a very low distortion and excellent gain flatness over the whole operating frequency range, as well as a temperature controlled fan for lower noise figures and increased lifetime operation.
Also containing internal bypass relays for main / standby and transceiver set-up, the amplifiers have an internal auto switch for back-up power in case of power failure.
Jotron Remote Control and Monitoring System (RCMS)
Jotron RCMS is intended for ATC or wide area control applications, allowing remote access, monitoring and control of the Jotron 7000 series’ radios, radio gateways and Interface Control Unit (ICU). The system offer easier user experience and advanced key features like alarm monitoring and real time BITE information.
Jotron RCMS is a complete radio test and measurement system and includes a comprehensive built-in reporting tool. The reporting tool allows radio-network operators to remotely do complete qualifying measurements – saving time and cost on on-site work.
The range of base station radios from Jotron, are optimized for remote operation over trunk lines, LAN/WAN networks, serial interfaces or other line formats adapted or interfaced to the standards available on the radios.
As radios comprising both 4W E&M and In-band signalling for audio, ie. VCCS providers can use preferred format for best system performance. Jotron’s own range of remote control units, comprises units for audio, frequency selection and more sophisticated all radio access control.
