Make it smaller, lighter, lower power – and don’t forget the performance improvement. That was the challenge we faced when our long-standing client Park Air Systems needed a new generation of its market-leading air traffic control radio system, the Park Air T6, which manages the movement of aircraft in the majority of the world’s airspace.

Clear differentiation from the client’s competitors was required – the aim was to ‘wow’ the market. To achieve this, small improvements wouldn’t be enough. The new system was engineered to be less than half the size of its predecessor, less than half the weight, more power efficient, and still deliver significant performance improvements.

It enabled Park Air Systems to reinvent ground-to-air communications, offering fail-safe communications across most of the world’s airspace, ensuring safer travel for 800,000 passengers every day.
