DAMM TETRA solution chosen for new Indian airport

A new international airport under development in the state of Uttar Pradesh in India will deploy a unified radio communication solution with DAMM high-capacity BS418 base stations at its core. Through a partnership with Consort Digital, the complete offering will consist of DAMM BS418 base stations alongside Consort’s MCX ONE Core Enterprise Server, MCX ONE Dispatch Center, MCX ONE Interworking Gateway and MCX ONE Mobile Application.

Noida International Airport, also known as Jewar International Airport, is an upcoming international airport being constructed on a 1334 ha greenfield site near Jewar in the Gautam Buddha Nagar District, Uttar Pradesh in India, and will serve the National Capital Region (NCR). It will serve as an alternative to Indira Gandhi International Airport in Delhi by relieving its high and rising traffic load.

Designed to be India’s most hi-tech, contemporary airport, the focus is on systems that deliver real autonomy to airport operations and which support the aim for zero net carbon emissions. The mission-critical communication solution based on DAMM technology was determined to be the most suitable choice for the developers to enhance the safety of all passengers and staff, while maximising operational efficiency.

The DAMM solution offers a novel distributed architecture and inherent scalability for high capacity and coverage, together with good performance. The system should thus provide a futureproof, mission-critical radio communication network to effortlessly meet all current operational needs, as well as the airport’s future capacity plans.

The airport’s first phase will deliver capacity for 12 million annual passengers and is expected to be fully commissioned by 2024. This will then be increased in stages, to 30 million passengers and two runways in 2031, 50 million passengers in 2036 and 70 million passengers with six runways by 2040. It will become the largest airport in Asia and the fourth largest in the world when all six runways are constructed.

The news comes some months after DAMM’s TETRA radio communication infrastructure was selected as an integral part of the mission-critical communication solution for the ‘Namma Metro’ project in Bangalore, which aims to alleviate heavy road congestion, reduce road accidents and lower pollution around the city.

The Namma Metro project is Phase II Reach 5 of the Bangalore Metro Rail Corporation Limited (BMRCL), a joint venture between the Government of India and the Government of Karnataka. It is a fully elevated metro line with a total of 16 stations, including the Hebbagodi depot, over a total length of 18.5 km.

The DAMM TETRA radio communication infrastructure will be seamlessly integrated within Consort Digital’s MCX ONE Dispatch Centre, MCX ONE Core Application Server, Train Radio Systems and Rail Integration Server, as well as end-user devices from Sepura, to deliver a scalable and secure digital radio system.

The DAMM MultiTech BS422 outdoor base station is a modern TETRA system that has been designed to provide minimal RF losses, consistent and reliable coverage, and a very low-maintenance burden. Further, DAMM’s distributed architecture, open API and modular structure should provide ease, full flexibility and a customised solution that fully meets the customer’s needs.
