VHF and UHF radios and recorder systems for Air Traffic Control (ATC)

Designed to surpass today’s demanding standards for audio communications

Jotron entered the ATC market in 1974 and has established itself as the provider of choice for modern air traffic control systems. Dedicated to safety, continuous improvement and international standardization, the company is a long-term member of technical ATC Communities.

Although the originally intent of these Jotron products was for use at airports, Jotron has gained additional customers including, civil and military aviation authorities, airport operators, airlines, coastal stations, and offshore and onshore oil and gas companies globally. Operating within several markets, and offering a large portfolio of  high-performance VHF and UHF band radios, Jotron manufactures both standard and customized solutions.  A large benefit of the Jotron  remote access control and monitoring of radios allow operators to not only save time, but also reduce on-site costs.

Flexible communication technology for an increasing number of markets

In addition to a full range of VHF and UHF base station radios, Jotron also offers a mobile versatile VHF AM transceiver. This radio is designed for applications where ground-to-air communication is essential. Often used by ground services at airports, vehicle installations and for portable emergency purposes. This radio is also available in a compliant version with marine standard approvals, used at offshore installations and helidecks.

Record and replay for reconstruction and analyzes of critical air traffic situations

Ricochet is a world-leading recorder system developed specifically for the air traffic control and marine markets. This recorder can be fully integrated with any Jotron radio.  By instant synchronous replay access and integrated replay, the operators can reproduce any scenario in the event an incident should occur. The system can identify the cause and ensure that improvements are implemented to avoid a similar incident in the future. The recording concept is modular and an unlimited number of channels can be recorded simultaneously.  This recording solution assists investigatory work and is also of huge benefit to air traffic controllers, supervisors and management for training and quality improvement purposes. SmartOil is designed for small onshore and offshore ATC operations. It records up to 8 analogue audio channels, 22 digital audio channels via VoIP (ED-137) and 3 CCTV cameras.
