General Dynamics wins $99M FAA contract
Reston contractor to provide radio receivers
The Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) has awarded Reston-based Fortune 100 defense contractor General Dynamics Corp. a $99 million contract to provide URC-300E transceivers as part of its Emergency Transceiver Replacement (ETR) program, the company announced Thursday.
The program replaces current legacy radios with very high frequency (VHF) and ultra high frequency (UHF) radios for civil and military air traffic control communications.
“The URC-300E is another example of our team’s dedication to delivering technologies and products that support the FAA’s efforts to continuously improve the national airspace and safety of flight,” Bill Ross, a vice president of General Dynamics Mission Systems, said in a statement.
General Dynamics employs 100,000 people worldwide and reported $39.4 billion in 2019 revenue.
