Air Force News Agency orders 10 Sundance eight-channel automation systems

November 20, 2007

The Air Force News Agency (AFNEWS), headquartered in San Antonio, has placed orders for 10 Sundance Digital Titan automation systems. Each system comprises eight channels and is being deployed for operation at different U.S. military installations in Feltwell, England; Lajes, Azores; Incirlik, Turkey; Aviano, Italy; Spangdahlen, Germany; and in Japan at Yokota (Tokyo), Okinawa, Misawa, Iwakuni and Sasebo.

To ensure the highest degree of on-air reliability, each of the AFNEWS Titans is being equipped with one or more air control stations or list processors to serve as a "hot standby" backup of the primary playback system.

AFNEWS is a field-operating agency of the Secretary of the Air Force Office of Public Affairs (SAF/PA). It gathers packages and disseminates printed and electronic news and information.
