HOOK3 Combat Survival Radio
Now Cospas-Sarsat & GPS SAASM Approved, M-Code Upgradeable
Our new HOOK3 Combat Survival Radio (CSR) is significantly smaller, lighter, and has better power efficiency than previous HOOK2 radios. It includes a new auto-activation feature that automatically transmits location data when G-Force or salt water is detected.
In a search and rescue operation, time is of the essence, and luck is not a strategy. When a crew member activates one of our radios, they can be confident help is on the way.
Our Ground-to-Air Radio Systems provide clear, reliable communications for air traffic control centers, commercial airports, and military installations.
Our URC Line of Sight radios are designed to provide highly dependable service and withstand the most demanding, harsh treatment and situations in the field.
Disruptive Radio Technologies
In today’s modern battlefield, the U.S. military needs to maintain networked communications in and under contested and congested electromagnetic spectrum environments. They need non-traditional waveforms and technologies that provide anti-jam, low probability of intercept, and low probability of detection. To respond to these needs, our experts build new radios and waveforms and quickly get them into the hands of soldiers.
U.S. Air Force search and rescue teams used General Dynamics' HOOK3 Combat Survival Radio during a simulated rescue mission to locate a NASA crew in the water after an aborted launch.
SCOTTSDALE, Ariz. – General Dynamics Mission Systems received a contract from the U.S. Air Force to supply more than 140 CM-300/350 V2 Air Traffic Control (ATC) radios, replacing existing ATC radios currently operating at U.S. Air Force in Europe (USAFE) locations.
The new waveform is software that adds the MUOS capability to software-defined DMR radios, and improves secure voice, video and data communications across the MUOS satellite communications (SATCOM) network.
