FAA and FREQUENTIS USA Celebrate the 75th Installation of Voice Communication Systems in the National Airspace System

10 September 2013

Over the last decade Frequentis’ Interim Voice Switch Replacement (IVSR) program became the largest deployment of Voice Communication Systems (VCS) worldwide. The VSRS follow-on program award to Frequentis sets the cornerstone for the next successful decade! 

On June 13, 2013, Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) accepted the 75th 3020X voice switch from Frequentis at Boise, Idaho. 

This system was the last system supplied under the Interim Voice Switch Replacement (IVSR) contract. The IVSR is the replacement for the legacy ETVS, RDVS, and STVS communication systems. Following successful In-service decision of the system at the Burlington, Vermont “key site”, the IVSR went into full production, serving the FAA’s needs at small, medium and large Tower/TRACON facilities. Our 3020X product quality, our company’s commitment to customer service, and our on-time/on-budget performance created the most successful VCS delivery program in the global ATC voice switch market. 

In September 2012, the FAA awarded Frequentis the 10-year Voice Switch Replacement System (VSRS) contract ensuring the continuation of our successful partnership. From this point forward we will deliver our 3020X systems under the recently awarded contract. Frequentis USA President, Leonard Swiontek stated, “Frequentis is proud to be able to continue to significantly participate in the FAA’s NAS modernization by providing our safe and reliable voice and data products.” With now over 90 delivered systems, the 3020X actively and flawlessly controls air traffic across the United States, trains the air traffic controllers of tomorrow, and increases air safety in the National Airspace System (NAS). 

Dan Duncan, FAA IVSR program manager stated, “Over the last decade Frequentis has proven to be a dependable partner to the FAA. Their outstanding technical expertise is supporting the NAS modernization to enhance operational efficiency and safety of the flying public.”
