URC-200 Radios Provide Lifeline for Air Traffic Control Following Hurricane Irma
General Dynamics Mission Systems’ URC-200 Line-of-Sight radios were recently deployed by the Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) to aid in relief efforts in St. Thomas following hurricane Irma. The radios were part of the FAA’s mobile Air Traffic Control (ATC) towers and provided critical ground-to-air radio communications for relief planes at St. Thomas airport. In addition the radios were also deployed in the Florida Keys as part of the FAA’s emergency response vehicles to aid air traffic control communications. Known for their dependability in the most demanding environments, the radios serve as an emergency backup system or “Jerk and Run” to reestablish vital ATC communications.
