Ground-to-Air Radio Systems
Trusted Globally For Reliable Ground-to-Air Communications
Since 1992 our Air Traffic Control (ATC) radios have provided clear and 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 20,000 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.
The New URC-300 Line-of-Sight Transceiver
Our new URC-300® line-of-sight transceiver is smaller and lighter than the URC-200 with significantly improved RF performance. The URC-300 is 25kHz and 8.33kHz ETSI Compliant to provide clearer communications in congested environments and was recently selected by the FAA for their emergency air traffic control communications.
CM-300/350 (V2) Air Traffic Control Radios
General Dynamics’ CM-300/350 (V2) radios provide advanced and network-ready ground-to-air communications to the FAA and DoD. Based on FAA NEXCOM Segment 2 requirements, the radios provide reliable, clear and uninterrupted communications to improve the safety of flight in the National Air Space (NAS).
The General Dynamics CM-300 series ATC radios have had a profound effect on our ability to communicate.
Reliable, clear, dynamic.

Simulcast System for Ground to Air Radio Communications
Watch how our Simulcast System expands radio coverage and provides a scalable solution to resolve your ground to air coverage gap issues.
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.
General Dynamics to Provide FAA with Emergency Backup Radios
The Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) has chosen General Dynamics to provide URC-300E® transceivers for their Emergency Transceiver Replacement (ETR) program. The radio will provide Very High Frequency (VHF) and Ultra High Frequency (UHF) operation for air traffic control communications in the event of a catastrophic failure.
