U.S. Air Force to advance F-16 communications capabilities

The U.S. Air Force F-16 will be the first to be equipped with Rockwell Collins' next-generation ARC-210 RT-2036(C) networked communications airborne radio, the first ever to include Mobile User Objective System (MUOS) and support Soldier Radio Waveform (SRW) capabilities.

The U.S. Air Force F-16 will be the first to be equipped with Rockwell Collins' next-generation ARC-210 RT-2036(C) networked communications airborne radio, the first ever to include Mobile User Objective System (MUOS) and support Soldier Radio Waveform (SRW) capabilities. The ARC-210 RT-2036(C) provides highly reliable, secure communications capabilities and will begin deployment to warfighter platforms upon final certification from the National Security Agency. The radio system is a part of Rockwell Collins' TruNet family of products that ensures secure connectivity between ground and airborne units and complements the recently released PRC-162 two-channel manpack radio. Integrating the latest line of sight and networking waveforms, the ARC-210 provides connectivity for manned and unmanned applications.
