The Federal Aviation Administration has awarded General Dynamics C4 Systems a $10 million contract to deliver additional ultra-high frequency radios and equipment to upgrade communications between air traffic controllers and military aircraft.
The CM-300 radios transmit and receive virtual flight path, tracking and related navigation information between military aircraft flying in the U.S. National Airspace System and air traffic control personnel on the ground.
The radios are used for air traffic control communications at U.S. military air stations and ranges in fixed-site and remote locations, the company said.
General Dynamics C4 Systems of Scottsdale, Ariz., is a business unit of General Dynamics Corp. specializing in command and control, communications networking, computing and information assurance. William Welsh writes for Washington Technology
