MADRID. Harris Corp. (NYSE:HRS) is supplying a next-generation, voice-over-IP (VoIP) net-centric communication system to modernize Taiwan’s air traffic control and support its military air defense system, officials announced during World ATM Congress in Madrid.
Harris will provide Taiwan with its IP-based Voice Communication System for the 21st Century (VCS21), which modernizes the air defense system by delivering net-centric voice communications that reduce dependency on traditional point-to-point communications. It also supports an efficient transition to IP-based communications. It will be installed at multiple facilities throughout Taiwan and initially include 140 controller working positions that can access radio and telephony sites across the region. VCS21 supports up to 800 controllers, enabling Taiwan to expand as needed.
"The Harris VCS21 system now supports air defense operations in Asia along with ATM operations in Europe and North America,” says Ed Zoiss, president, Harris Electronic Systems. “Harris VCS21 will be a key enabler for countries seeking to modernize and grow their networks to address the worldwide increase in air traffic.”
Harris Corp. solves customers’ toughest mission-critical challenges by providing solutions that connect, inform, and protect. Harris supports government and commercial customers in more than 100 countries and has approximately $6 billion in annual revenue. The company is organized into three business segments: Communication Systems, Space and Intelligence Systems and Electronic Systems.
