General Dynamics C4 Systems recently received an in-service decision certification from the Federal Aviation Administration for the General Dynamics CM-300/350 V2 UHF and VHF air traffic control radios.
With the certification, the new CM-300/350 V2 radios are approved for installation and operation in FAA facilities, replacing approximately 28,000 aging ATC radios in more than 2,000 FAA locations nationwide. The new software-defined radios will provide next-generation digital voice communications to air traffic control personnel and pilots as they fly across the US National Airspace System. Based on the FAA´s implementation plan, the new radios will start arriving at FAA facilities during the fourth quarter of 2014.
The General Dynamics C4 Systems facility in Scottsdale, Ariz., will build the radios. It is a business unit of General Dynamics (NYSE: GD). More information about General Dynamics C4 Systems is available at www.gdc4s.com. Information about General Dynamics is available at www.gd.com.
