“We are looking forward to implementing our state of the art VCS and DIVOS solutions for Saudi Air Navigation Services, providing them with high availability voice communications systems based on IP technology.” says Hannu Juurakko, Vice President ATM Civil, Frequentis. iCAD, our regional contract partner and main contractor for the project, based in the Middle East, will deliver the project, with the roll-out expected to take a total of 30-months.
 
“With this project and with our leading technology partner Frequentis, we are convinced that we will deliver a state of the art system to SANS to improve the Air Traffic Services in the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia. At the same time, we are looking forward to strengthening our relationship and working on further joint projects in the region.” Says Ghassan Sayegh, CEO of iCAD.
