US gets 40,000th ARC-210 radio
The currently fielded ARC-210 Generation 5 Software-Defined Radio (SDR) provides Joint Precision Approach and Landing System (JPALS) UHF data link, SATCOM integrated waveform and combat net radio capabilities and is certified with Tactical Secure Voice 2.
The ARC-210 is fielded on more than 200 platform variants worldwide in over 50 countries. In the US it is in operation on a range of fixed-wing and helicopters across all branches of the military and the US Coast Guard.
Candace Chesser, Naval Air Systems Command Air Combat Electronics (PMA-209) program manager, said: ‘The delivery of the 40,000th radio continues a 25-year relationship between Rockwell Collins and the US Navy on the ARC-210 programme - a model for government-industry teaming.
‘This radio, which has continued to evolve with the needs of the navy, is the standard for multi-band, multi-mode communications and plays a key role in allowing joint and coalition forces to communicate in various theatres of operations worldwide.’
