Air Force F-16 communications network will integrate with MUOS and SRW capabilities
CEDAR RAPIDS, Iowa. U.S. Air Force officials tapped Rockwell Collins to deliver its ARC-210 RT-2036(C) networked communications airborne radio, which will include Mobile User Objective System (MUOS) and support Soldier Radio Waveform (SRW) capabilities.
The system will be integrated into the Air Force F-16 aircraft. Once it receives final National Security Agency (NSA), officials plan to deploy it to warfighter platforms. 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 data, voice and imagery for both manned and unmanned applications.
