SANTA MARIA, Calif., 14 Jan. 2009.Quintron Systems Inc., maker of advanced interoperable voice systems and physical access control/intrusion detection systems, gained two new product development contracts based on its DICES VoIP system.
NASA Ames Research Center officials awarded Quintron Systems a contract for a system that incorporates numerous air traffic control features, including full FAA operator screens with most functions operable. This system supports the Ames Airspace Operations Laboratory (AOL), which provides simulation environments for improved air traffic control operating systems and procedures.
This system was delivered in initial form in October 2008 and further software enhancements will be incorporated through early 2009.
The second new system development has been delivered to the Air National Guard in Tucson, Ariz., and will be used for Emergency Alert notification in airfield operations. The features and capabilities provided by this system meet operating requirements of Air Force Instruction 13-213 that are applicable at all military air field operations around the world, says a representative.
This system uses a simplified DICES VoIP server connected to ring-down phones at numerous locations around the airfield for immediate access for emergency reporting. Two central operator positions will include LCD units with activity status display for all phones. This new system will be installed in January.
