General Dynamics gets new FAA air traffic radio order

General Dynamics C4 Systems will deliver $10 million worth of additional ultra-high frequency radios and equipment to the Federal Aviation Administration 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.

General Dynamics Corp. of Falls Church, Va., has 81,100 employees and annual revenue of $24.1 billion in 2006. The company ranks No. 7 on Washington Technology's 2007 Top 100 list of the largest federal government prime contractors.
