TETRA Radio Takes Mission Critical Transmissions into the FutureIt has been announced that John Monto, ARINC’s Director of Radio Technology Solutions will speak at the inaugural TETRA conference about mission critical transmissions of aviation communications, specifically for LAX airport.

Mr Monto will look at the implementation process of the TETRA deployment, following the recent FCC approval for its use in mission critical transmissions.

TETRA could bring potential benefits for ground-based, physical security issues at LAX and at airports across America, particularly in the transportation and utilities sectors.

“ARINC is dedicated to ensuring our customers have clear connectivity to communicate vital information to airline personnel, passenger services, ground handlers, terminal security teams, and all airport ground support staff,” said Monto. “I am excited to discuss how our valued customers at LAX are using TETRA and the benefits it is providing that’s enabling them to get their jobs done in a more timely and efficient manner.”

Forty seven world leaders attended the meeting in Washington last month in a bid to discuss nuclear security improvements of global nuclear facilities.  In addition, the importance of the prevention of Nuclear Terrorism was a hot topic for discussion.

A target goal of four years was set by the meeting, convened by President Obama.  Although no binding commitments were made, many leaders outline steps they are prepared to take towards the advancement of nuclear security.

The U.S. feel that the first priority is to ensure that all nuclear facilities and materials on home ground are secure.

Measures will include the implementation of international treaties ad support for the UN Security Council.  All nuclear materials should remain secure and accounted for, with a consolidation aspect for peaceful purposes only.  Strong nuclear security practices need to be realised for the nuclear industry to remain secure while in operation in the private sector, for example, for nuclear fuel research projects and detection methods.

Physical nuclear security measures can be enforced within all sectors and several companies offer secure, reliable and efficient solutions, such as ARINC Inc, with their PSIM services and ARINC Advanced Information Management system (AIM).

The world leaders are taking firm steps into a safer and more peaceful future.

Virginia-based VIDSys, PSIM providers have announced that they have raised $15.6 in equity financing led by NewSpring Capital, with participation from previous investors, Motorola Solutions, Flybridge Capital, JVax Investment Group and Atlanta Equity.

Although it is unclear exactly how the PSIM providers will do with the new capital, a statement issued by VIDSys said, “VidSys will use these funds to help grow and scale the company on a global basis beyond our existing footprint. … We will also invest in further development of our core software … for our public sector and enterprise clients.”

Other PSIM providers are also doing well globally.  ARINC PSIM solution has become available across the world after its respected debut in the US, where they provide more than 50% of North America’s nuclear power plants with system security.

ARINC Advanced Information Management (AIM) also provides command, control and access for secure government facilities, seaports, airports and military installations where real-time situational awareness is essential for personnel, passengers and facility safety and security.
