Rockwell Collins will equip a US Air Force F-16 aircraft with its next-generation ARC-210 RT-2036(C) networked communications airborne radio, the company announced on 29 November.

The radio includes Mobile User Objective System and supports Soldier Radio Waveform capabilities. Part of the company’s TruNet family of products, it is designed to ensure secure connectivity between ground and airborne units, providing connectivity for data, voice and imagery for both manned and unmanned applications.

Deployment of the ARC-210 RT-2036(C) will begin after the system receives final certification from the National Security Agency.

Troy Brunk, VP and general manager, communication, navigation and electronic warfare solutions for Rockwell Collins, said: ‘We heard, understood and are delivering the new communications capabilities being called for on the modern battlefield.

‘Users of the ARC-210 radio will benefit from the latest in secure communications technology, gaining a tactical advantage over the enemy.’
