General Dynamics awarded ATC radio contract
General Dynamics C4 Systems has been awarded an order from the US Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) for the CM-300/350 series ultrahigh frequency (UHF) Air Traffic Control (ATC) radio. Under the $6.5 million contract General Dynamics will provide more than 1,000 units for critical ground-to-air communications for military pilots and crew.
According to the company, the order includes the 15,000th CM-300 series radio delivered to the US government for air traffic control communications. This order is part of a 10-year indefinite delivery, indefinite quantity contract awarded to General Dynamics by the FAA in 2002. All contract options have been exercised and the $100 million full potential value of the contract has been reached.
As part of the NEXCOM UHF contract awarded in 2002, the company began delivering the CM-300/350 UHF radios to the US government. The CM-300/350 UHF radio links air traffic controllers to military aircraft flying across the national airspace. Another model of the same radio, the CM-300/350 very high frequency (VHF) radios, enable air traffic control communications for commercial and general aviation aircraft.
