Sunhillo Corporation, a leading supplier of both products and services to the FAA and the ATC/ATM business community, announces the sale of Sunhillo Technical Services (STS) Corporation, formally a wholly owned subsidiary company of Sunhillo Corporation, to Enroute Computer Solutions (ECS) of Atlantic City N.J. for an undisclosed price. The sale is effective immediately and includes all existing FAA contract services work under contract with STS.
“This is an exciting opportunity for both companies”, said Dave Whitman, President, Sunhillo Corporation. “For Sunhillo, this sale enables us to focus our energies into our core product and systems solutions areas of expertise, while still providing services support to the FAA through the parent company. This sale will also make it possible for Sunhillo to invest more resources into a next generation of Sunhillo products and systems solutions for the ATC community, the FAA and future programs.”

Frequentis and Sunhillo have addressed the challenge of connecting the UAV pilot in command (PIC) with air traffic control (ATC) units by developing its UAS-C system. The UAS-C converts UAS position data into standard aviation formats and provides a secure virtual radio communication link to connect seamlessly to the existing ATC infrastructure.
UAS-C provides air traffic controllers and command centers with reliable and secure ground-based UAS pilot communication while the UAV pilot uses the same virtual frequency as manned aviation users, minimizing the risk of safety infringements. Since the communication equipment is located on the ground, UAS-C does not relay information through the UAS vehicle radio equipment, reducing the overall weight of the UAS, increasing payload.
