Dubai Airshow: Frequentis and Bin Hilal to deliver mission-critical communication solutions

Posted 19 November 2019 · Add Comment

Frequentis has partnered with Bin Hilal Enterprises to support the market demand for mission-critical solutions in the UAE.


Bin Hilal Enterprises is known for delivering state of the art technologies, products and services to the UAE defence sector. By partnering with Bin Hilal Enterprises Frequentis aims to increase its footprint in the defence market in the UAE.

One of Frequentis’ key strengths in the civil domain, which is now gaining attention in the defence market, is its remote digital tower solution. “Remote air traffic control tower (RT) and digital tower solutions have already been tested and put into operation at civil airports around the world, but the potential for defence organisations is even greater.

The Frequentis smartVISION system allows controllers to benefit from an enhanced view of the airfield, compared to the one from a conventional tower with additional features like object detection, tracking and infrared available,” said Hank Ruebenstrunk, head of regional sales Unit Middle East.

In October 2019, Frequentis completed installation of its remote digital tower solution for Santa Cruz airfield in Brazil, making it the first such system in South America. Here 16 high-performance, Pan-Tilt- Zoom (PTZ) cameras located around the airbase feed data back to a 14-screen video wall in a bespoke remote tower facility, creating a 360-degree panorama view of the airfield. In addition, the US DoD are currently testing the mobile, deployable version of the Frequentis smartVISION system, and will begin testing the fixed version in March 2020. 

“We are looking forward to supporting Frequentis, helping them to grow their technology base in the Middle-East, bringing their experience and mission-critical technology portfolio to the region,” said Humaid Al Ahaheri – vice chairman Bin Hilal Enterprises.
