DAMM deployed in airports in Oman & Saudi Arabia

King Khalid International Airport (KKIA), Muscat International Airport & Salalah International Airport in the GCC, are now utilizing the intelligent, decentralized DAMM TetraFlex® System to secure critical radio communication.

King Khalid International Airport (KKIA), located north of Riyadh in Saudi Arabia, served 18.58 million passengers in 2013, and there is a current expansion in the airport to increase the capacity to 35 million passengers. In KKIA, the system deployed includes redundant DAMM TetraFlex® High Power Indoor Base Stations and the system provides full coverage for one of the world’s largest airports in the world.

Muscat International and Salalah International Airports will be the new gateway to the Sultanate of Oman. The New Salalah International will able to handle one million passengers per annum and the new Muscat International Airport will have capacity to handle 12 million passengers per annum. Further expansions planned in three subsequent phases will ultimately boost the airport capacity to 24, 36 and 48 million passengers when the demand is required. DAMM TetraFlex® deliveries include multisite redundant High Power Indoor Base Stations. The built-in application enabled for this system includes Voice and Data Log System, Group Bridge to interconnect from TETRA to analog radio systems and the open API for easy integration of applications customized to the airport.

Khaled A. Karim, Regional Executive states: “The progress in the Middle-Eastern markets clearly demonstrates the reliability of DAMMs TetraFlex® solutions in a very demanding and complex mission critical environment. The new DAMM Multi-Tech Platform, will continue to provide tomorrows airports with the right balance between security, simplicity and operational effectiveness.”

Allan Detlefsen, CCO, DAMM, elaborates: “For both Muscat and KKIA the key factors for choosing DAMM were a successful evaluation and analysis of the customer requirements, as well as the easy integration of 3rd party applications. With these two airports and more projects already won in named GCC countries, DAMM, along with our regional partner Waves, is proud of these achievements setting yet another milestone in the region as the leader of future proof mission critical radio communication systems.”
