Ground-to-Air Radio Systems
Trusted Globally For Reliable Ground-to-Air Communications
Since 1992 our Air Traffic Control (ATC) radios have provided clear, reliable, ground-to-air communications to meet the dynamic communication requirements of air traffic control centers, commercial airports, and military air stations and range installations. With over 15,000 radios delivered, they are the first radios deployed in the National Airspace System (NAS) to support VoIP global standards, and have quickly become the preferred choice of the FAA and DoD to replace legacy radios.
Introducing the New URC-300™ Line-of-Sight Transceiver
Our new URC-300 line-of-sight transceiver improves ground-to-air communications and is specifically designed to enable customizable future enhancements to fit your mission.
It is smaller and lighter than the URC-200™ with significantly improved RF performance and 8.33 KHz compliance to provide clearer communications in congested and international environments.
CM-300/350 (V2) Air Traffic Control Radios
Air Traffic Control (ATC) radios need to keep pace with the demanding volume of air traffic. Knowing that your ATC radios can perform well in a high stress environment helps to make your job a little less stressful.

According to the latest FAA Fielded Reliability Report, the CM-300/350 V2 radios average over 400,000 hours Fielded Mean Time Between Failure (FMTBF) across 266 operational terminal sites monitored, making them one of the most reliable ATC radios in the world.
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.
