Ground radio communications

ARINC RTS digital trunked radio services offer mission-critical voice and data communications. Whether your operations include a small campus-wide area or a nationwide interconnected network, ARINC RTS can provide the solutions you need.

In addition to PTT, our ground radio networks provide critical health and safety functionalities for users, such as live GPS positioning, man down alarms, lone worker and emergency calls. We work with the leading providers of DMR, TETRA and P25 radio manufacturers.

At Collins, we own and operate our own radio networks across the country and provide users with a flexible OPEX or subscription services model.  We can also deploy a full turn-key network on your behalf.

Air-to-ground VHF

Reliable communication between the aircraft crew and ground operations is critical, especially as the aircraft approaches the airport (<200miles). ARINC RTS offers VHF air-ground-air radio service for voice communications between airport ground base operations and flight crew. Once the aircraft is on the ground, Air-to-ground VHF is used to maintain coordinated ramp operations between the aircraft crew and the ground operations dispatchers in the Operations Control Center.

Operations Control Centers with dispatch consoles

The Operations Control Center (OCC) is the brain and central nervous system of your operations.

By seamlessly integrating all of the different wireless networks (VHF, UHF, 800Mhz) and corporate telephony networks (PSTN, VoIP, etc.), as well as coordinating multiple and disparate groups, RTS can help your OCC achieve effective and reliable communications for consistently fast turnaround time.

We deliver industry-leading dispatch consoles, design configurations, deployment and ongoing support to improve your operational performance and safety.
