CEDAR RAPIDS, Iowa, 1 May 2010. Rockwell Collins delivered its 30,000th ARC-210 radio to the U.S. military.
The ARC-210 provides two-way, multi-mode voice and data communications over a 30 to 512 MHz frequency range. It also includes embedded Ultra High Frequency (UHF) and Very High Frequency (VHF) anti-jam waveforms and other data link and secure communications features, providing the user with total battlefield interoperability and high-performance capabilities in the transfer of data, voice, and imagery, Rockwell Collins officials say.
The ARC-210 is now fielded on more than 180 platforms worldwide and is operating in more than 40 countries. Domestically, ARC-210s are installed in a wide range of aircraft and helicopters across all the U.S. military services and the U.S. Coast Guard.
"This program is now a model for government-industry teaming and is a testament to our good relationship with the U.S. Navy," says Kelly Ortberg, executive vice president and chief operating officer of Government Systems for Rockwell Collins. "This milestone is also significant because it represents $2 billion in ARC-210 sales for our company since the program started in 1990."
