September 4, 2013 - General Dynamics C4 Systems
announced that the new software defined CM
300/350 (V2) UHF and VHF air traffic control
(ATC) radios have completed the first phase of
the Federal Aviation Administration’s (FAA)
Factory Acceptance Testing program that
evaluated the radios’ hardware and software.
These networking radios deliver advanced
communications capabilities, including
unprecedented sound clarity that makes it easier
for air traffic controllers and pilots to hear
one another. Combined with other features, the
new radios will significantly improve the safety
and efficiency of aircraft operating across the
increasingly busy U.S. national airspace.
“General Dynamics moved from contract award for
a brand new radio to delivering radios for
acceptance testing in just over a year, which is
a testament to the strength of the General
Dynamics-FAA team,” said Chris Marzilli,
president of General Dynamics C4 Systems.
