General Dynamics‘ mission systems business unit has produced and delivered its 10,000th air traffic control radio to the Federal Aviation Administration under the agency’s NEXCOM 2 modernization program.
The company said Friday the CM-300/350 voice over internet protocol radios were designed to offer communication capacity for air traffic controllers and pilots who operate within the National Airspace System.
The Air Force Special Operations Command, Air Forces in Europe and the U.S. Navy have adopted CM-300/350 V2 radios to replace aging air traffic control radios and accommodate the expansion of future air traffic management ground infrastructure requirements.
Paul Parent, vice president of radio programs and products at General Dynamics Mission Systems, said the company developed its radio technology to address communications requirements of ATC, commercial airports, military air stations and range installations.
General Dynamics received the NEXCOM 2 contract in 2012 to to help FAA modernize its ground-to-air ATC radios.
