ENAIRE AWARDS NÚCLEO-GRUPO AMPER THE RENOVATION OF THE EQUIPMENT OF THE COMMUNICATIONS CENTRE GROUND-TO-AIR OF PICO DE LA GORRA, IN GRAN CANARIA

The Ground-to-Air Communication Center located in Pico de la Gorra is the most important centre of the Canary Islands sector and one of the most important for Spanish Civil Aviation, belonging to the ENAIRE network.


This centre provides coverage, through 36 V-UHF frequencies, to the mobile communications service of the Area Control Center (ACC) of The Canary Islands, the Air Rescue Service and supports the Control Center of Casablanca.

Núcleo-Grupo Amper will renew all the radio equipment, moving to a VoIP technology, increasing the frequency capacity thanks to the 8,33 kHz channelling, improving the redundancy characteristics of ground-to-ground communications, maintaining the duality of analog technology and integrating the equipment into the ORION remote monitoring system.

A project of more than 2 M€ which is a major challenge for both Núcleo-Amper Group and ENAIRE due to access, orographic, climatological and environmental limitations of the  site as well as the technical and operational requirements associated to a long-range coverage in the transoceanic sector of Spanish responsibility.
