Northrop Grumman Park Air

Organisation Overview

Northrop Grumman Park Air: global presence, local expertise

In 182 countries around the world, more than 61,000 Park Air radio systems are relied upon by civil and defence organisations to deliver their communication services. Park Air technology is vital to the successful operation of small and large ATM systems alike.


ATC communication: civil aviation 

Park Air provides solutions to suit every level of airspace communication; from single radio to complex custom-built systems.

The Park Air Sapphire portfolio delivers everything required for future-proof ATM communications. From radio sub-systems and remote control and management networks to voice communication control systems, recorders and civil works, the Sapphire portfolio includes every element of a modern ATM communication system. Its components are designed to integrate perfectly for seamless implementation and operations.

Park Air provides a complete service for the specification, installation, commissioning and through-life support of your ATM communication system to deliver maximum performance, availability and efficiency.

Defence communication

In a military setting, robust communications are mission-critical.

Park Air’s secure radio solutions deliver optimum capability in the most hostile of environments.

Our expertise extends from complex ship-borne systems, nationwide air-defence networks to compact deployable cabin operations.

At the heart of the portfolio is the Park Air M7 VHF/UHF radio providing voice, data-link, encryption and frequency hopping capabilities. Its design is rugged and scalable with a menu of options to meet all eventualities. The M7 VHF/UHF range of radios is designed for defence forces to address every communication need in fixed, maritime and deployable applications.

Network security

We have the expertise to advise on the most appropriate network assurance approach for the full communications infrastructure, providing connected devices with right levels of security. Based on industry best practice, this is most often achieved through a layered set of protective measures, which can be scaled to suit systems of differing size.

We also provide a range of training courses, from the basics of network security through to highly specialised and bespoke modules catering for advanced learners. Training is specifically designed for the ATM community, utilising the latest blended learning techniques. The courses can be delivered in face-to-face classroom sessions at our UK facility - the Park Air Academy - or at the customer’s facilities. In addition, some modules can be delivered remotely as e-learning modules.
