General Dynamics receives $25m production order for new FAA air traffic control radios
General Dynamics C4 Systems received the first production order from the Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) for new software-defined, Voice over Internet Protocol (VoIP) CM-300/350 UHF and VHF air traffic control (ATC) radios, related accessories and training materials. The $25m order will begin a new chapter in ground-to-air communications as the next-generation radios deliver crisp, clear communication between pilots and air traffic controllers. Based on the FAA’s implementation schedule, the radios will be installed in airport terminal ATC sites, regional control centers and other aviation facilities throughout the United States.
