French airports receive Sepura gateway radio
A gateway radio solution has been successfully tested by Sepura’s French partner, with a view to rolling it out at Lyon-Bron Airport and Lyon Saint-Exupery.
Sysoco took part in a rapid intervention exercise to demonstrate the synchronisation of communications between the fire and rescue services (SSLIA), the fire and rescue Service of Rhone-Alpes and fuel company Total.
The simulation scenario involved attending the scene of an accident between an airplane and a fully laden fuel tanker. The scenario day was set up to test the level of communications coordination between the services during an emergency. The day was also a great testing ground for Sysoco’s new gateway solution, based on Sepura SRG3900s, which enables extended communication coverage between ground teams and command and control.
In this exercise, Sysoco used the Sepura SRG3900 from the firefighter’s command post vehicle as a gateway, to enable communication in local mode between all portable radios within a 1- to 2-kilometre radius. In this exercise, Sysoco used the Sepura SRG3900 from the firefighter’s command post vehicle as a gateway, to enable communication in local mode between all portable radios within a 1- to 2-kilometre radius, dependent on the relief and height of the antenna on a telescopic tower.
The use of gateway radios allows Aeroports de Lyon to run a system that links the SSLIA to the command post of the Saint-Exupery Airport. Sysoco’s gateway solution will provide coverage into neighbouring areas of the airport and support nearby Lyon Saint-Exupery airport thanks to the 12-metre-high telescopic tower.
Following a successful test day, both Lyon-Bron and Lyon Saint-Exupery airport now have better coverage in the case of emergencies.
Over 400,000 Sepura TETRA radios have now been delivered to BDBOS users in 11 German states.
