General Dynamics‘ mission systems unit has delivered its 5,000th CM-300/350 V2 radio to the Transportation Department in support of the Federal Aviation Administration‘s NEXCOM 2 communications modernization program.
The delivery is part of the 2012 NEXCOM 2 contract that sought to replace the existing ground-to-air radios at FAA facilities and military installations, General Dynamics said Tuesday.
The company added that as a digital Voice over Internet Protocol software-defined radios, CM-300/350 V2 works to offer network-ready, ground-to-air communications to FAA and facilitate communication reliability for air traffic controllers and pilots.
Paul Parent, radio programs and products vice president at General Dynamics mission systems, said the VHF-UHF radios were designed to support modifications to meet changing requirements set by air traffic control centers, commercial airports, military air stations and range installations.
General Dynamics, which manufactures the CM-300/350 V2 radios at its facility in Arizona, delivered the first such radio to FAA in 2014.
