Terminal 1, the Sheikh Rashid Terminal, was the first major expansion of Dubai International Airport. It was the first airport in the Middle East where the constant lambda focussed array technology was used (Axys Intellivox). Prior to the installation a test was carried out that convinced the DCA management in choosing this technology. It meant only 14 loudspeakers could be used with better speech intelligibility in stead of over 300 conventional loudspeakers. The success at this airport lead to a wide acceptance of the constant lambda technology.
