Thales Canada Transportation Solutions has signed a contract with Swiss firm HUBER+SUHNER to supply trackside and on-board antennas and equipment for the New York City subway.

Under the contract, HUBER+SUHNER will provide Sencity spot-M Yagi antennas, rolling stock Spot-S antennas and with radio frequency (RF) cable assemblies.

The equipment will be used to build the train-to-track radio network for trackside and rolling stock on the New York City Transit Flushing Line 7.

"Thales Canada had a requirement for a high-performance, narrow-beam trackside antenna and our Yagi antenna fulfilled that need."

The Spot-S antennas will be installed in the front car of the train and connected to an access point with RF cables assemblies.

The Sencity Spot-M Yagi antennas will be placed in tunnels, where directional functionality and high gain is required to support the Thales-deployed wireless communication systems.

HUBER+SUHNER North America sales director Scott Annis said: "Thales Canada had a requirement for a high performance, narrow-beam trackside antenna for use in the many tunnels that the New York City Subway trains travel through and our Yagi antenna fulfilled that need."
