ARINC Incorporated has deployed four new remote ground stations to enhance the coverage of its GLOBALink/VHF data link network for aviation in South Korea.
ARINC recently deployed two new ground stations to provide GLOBALink/VHF coverage at Cheongju and Yeosu airports.
The company also deployed two auxiliary ground stations to enhance existing GLOBALink coverage at Seoul’s Gimpo and Incheon gateways.
The station deployments were accomplished with the support of two ARINC Asia Pacific GLOBALink partners, South Korea’s AirMedia, and Aeronautical Radio of Thailand (AEROTHAI).
Airlines arriving and departing from South Korea will benefit from more accurate reporting of aircraft movements and status, while congestion on voice radio channels can be reduced.
“The deployment of additional GLOBALink/VHF ground stations in South Korea will enable increased efficiency and safety for the airlines,” says Jim Martin, ARINC’s Asia-Pacific managing director.
ARINC’s network of 11 GLOBALink/VHF ground stations in South Korea covers most of the country’s major international airports including Jeju Island.
To date, ARINC’s Asia-Pacific operations have successfully deployed more than 150 VHF Data Link ground stations in 12 countries of the region.
