Northrop Grumman to supply air traffic communications system for military base in Afghanistan

LONDON, 29 March 2012. Northrop Grumman Corp.'s (NYSE:NOC) Europe-based air traffic management systems subsidiary, Northrop Grumman Park Air Systems, has been awarded a contract by the NATO Consultation, Command and Control (NATO C3) Agency to provide a second air traffic control receiver site for Kandahar Air Base, Afghanistan.


Kandahar Airfield has been maintained by NATO since 2006 and is a key logistics hub used by NATO forces in Afghanistan. It is now one of the busiest single-use runways in the world.

The receiver site will house 16 VHF/UHF radios for the air base. Due to the urgent NATO operational requirement, the radios have been supplied and installed in a matter of weeks. The equipment has successfully been installed onsite and is now fully operational, accomplished well within the expected schedule.

This contract follows on from the previous installation of the complete air traffic communications solution for the Kandahar Air Base in 2010. Park Air Systems has worked with NATO for more than 20 years to provide communication solutions.

Park Air Systems, based in Peterborough, U.K., and in Oslo and Horten, Norway, supplies communication, navigation and surveillance systems for air-space operations worldwide.
