ARINC to equip LIRR with communications system

Posted on March 5, 2009

ARINC Inc. has been awarded a contract to design and deliver supervisory control and communications systems for the Long Island Rail Road control tower at the Harold Interlocking Complex in Queens, N.Y.

 

ARINC will implement a supervisory control system using its Advanced Information Management (AIM) software platform. The AIM platform provides open control architecture and a comprehensive set of field-proven train control and tracking applications, all using commercial off-the-shelf computer hardware.

 

The ARINC AIM system will provide new supervisory control, communications and local control systems for the LIRR’s Harold Territory, which includes Harold, Point, and “F” Interlocking, and connects the East River Tunnels with the LIRR Main Line/Port Washington Line and Amtrak’s Gate Interlocking. New York’s transit plans call for a new, direct LIRR connection under the East River from Harold Interlocking to East Side Manhattan and Grand Central Terminal.
