TRANSLOCATION OF AIR TRAFFIC SERVICES EQUIPMENTS
The present system requires redundancy and fail-proof architecture, which has been installed by the Original Equipment Manufacturer (OEM) and requires to be reproduced at the new site. Before shifting the equipments, the automation network, Voice Control System (VCS) network, Digital Voice Tape Recorder (DVTR) network, Very High Frequency (VHF) cabling, phones, intercoms, hotlines, Nav-aids network etc., were established after elaborate planning and ensuring that the manuals require minimum correction, reducing the risk in cable tracing and fault rectification.
ESTABLISHMENT OF BSNL LINES AND REMOTE LINES
New optical fibre cables were laid out and a suitable interface was procured and installed for the remote maintenance and monitoring of Nav-aids and surveillance facilities, to provide status of the Nav-aids to the Tower/ ACC and surveillance feed to integrate to the automation system. Existing RC copper cables from OTB were also extended to conduct parallel services between the old and the new ACC. All OFC networks were GPS surveyed and recorded for ease of tracing, in future, within one meter accuracy. For redundancy of OFC, RF link was also established. In coordination with BSNL, established circuits for telephones, hotlines and data circuits were added to the new ATS building.
ESTABLISHMENT OF NEW TOWER
An independent tower equipment room was established with all the required equipment and other requisite infrastructure except for the CNS/ATC facilities like tower automation, VCS, recording and phones which were extended from the old technical
ACC at new ATS
