General Dynamics has received a five-year, $23M contract to replace current air traffic control radio systems at U.S. Air Force bases in Europe.

The company said Tuesday it will deliver at least 140 CM-300/350 V2 software-defined radios to USAF's facilities across the continent.

CM-300/350 is built upon the Federal Aviation Administration's NEXCOM Segment II design that includes a internet protocol-based networking function to support remote ATC management and maintenance efforts.

Paul Parent, a vice president of General Dynamics’ mission systems business, said that Defense Department and civilian air traffic controllers have provided feedback about the quality of voice communications via the company-built radios.

The technology is designed to operate for up to 428K hours throughout its useful life, the company noted.
