Dataprobe Providing Federal Aviation Administration -FAA- with 7,000 Circuit Protection Switches for Critical Air Traffic Control Communications.

PARAMUS, N.J. -- Dataprobe completes first phase of communications network protection for the FAA Telecommunications Infrastructure (FTI) program as Part of Harris Corporation Team

Dataprobe Inc., leading manufacturer of innovative technology solutions for networking, systems, and site management, announced today the successful deployment of approximately 1,000 circuit protection switches for critical voice air-to-ground communications as part of the Harris FTI team. Harris is the prime contractor and system integrator for the $1.9 billion FTI program that is improving telecommunications and operations functions at more than 5,000 FAA facilities nationwide.

Dataprobe provided Harris with automatic protection switches to be used over four-wire analog voice lines. Dataprobe customized their standard switch to meet the FAA's demanding specifications. In Phase 1, Harris will outfit FAA Air Route Traffic Control Centers (ARTCC) and Terminal Radar Approach Control (TRACON) facilities with these switches through which to direct all air traffic communications. Future sites will include Airport Traffic Control Tower (ATCT) and Automated Flight Service Station (AFSS) locations.

Dataprobe's circuit protection switches ensure connectivity within communications networks when a system or communication line failure occurs. The circuit protection switches can toggle communication between redundant communication lines or equipment for air traffic control. If there is a failure on line A, Dataprobe's switches automatically re-route communication through line B, allowing constant communication for critical applications. Mark Graham, FTI Chief Systems Engineer at Harris stated, "Dataprobe's unique line of products allowed them to tailor a solution to meet the FAA's requirements. There is no other product on the market that functions exactly like the Dataprobe voice protection switch."

David Weiss, President of Dataprobe, stated, "The FTI contract is extremely important not only for the FAA but also for all of us who travel by air. This project is going to affect all air traffic; commercial, civilian and military flights. It has been very rewarding to work so closely with the Harris Corporation in providing the FAA with a superior product that helps them protect the link between pilots in the air with their controllers on the ground. We are looking forward to more great success with the next phase of this project."
