Next-Generation AN/ARC-210(click to view larger) The US Navy awarded a 4-year production contract to Rockwell Collins for AN/ARC-210 aircraft radios. The contract has a potential value of $450 million over the 4-year life of the program. The ARC-210 provides 2-way, multi-mode voice and data communications over a 30-512 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 communication features. As part of the contract, Rockwell Collins will produce the next-generation AN/ARC-210 radio, RT-1939-C, which will enter production in 2010. This fifth generation of the ARC-210 is software reprogrammable and brings new capabilities. The RT-1939-C’s [PDF] additional capabilities include: * Frequency range extension to cover 30-941 MHz; * MIL-STD-188-220D and MIL-STD-2045-47001D networking and data transfer; * Enhanced SINCGARS Improvement Program (SINCGARS ESIP); * Second-generation Anti-jam Tactical UHF Radio for NATO (SATURN); * Joint Precision Approach Landing System (JPALS); * External Ethernet data connectivity via dedicated interface; * LPC-10 and MELP vocoders; and * Growth for evolving capabilities, including MUOS (Mobile User Objective System), integrated waveform (IW) for UHF SATCOM, APCO 25, Intelligence Broadcast System (IBS), and Automated Identification Systems (AIS) With more than 28,000 radios fielded, […]
