Embraer has selected Rockwell Collins’ Talon radio to provide Talon radios for its six Legacy 500 aircraft.
Under the Brazilian Air Force I-X Project, the Legacy 500 aircraft will be used for flight inspection and airport calibration missions, the company announced on Wednesday.
“This is a key program win for us, as it represents our first Talon radio sale to Embraer for a Brazilian Air Force program, and is a complement to our existing Talon radio position on Brazilian Army rotary aircraft,” said Alan Prowse, vice president and managing director, Americas for Rockwell Collins.
One of the unique features of the program is the ability to smoothly and easily integrate the Talon radios into the Pro Line Fusion avionics, both proven solutions developed by Rockwell Collins.
The Rockwell Collins Talon radio features a digital radio architecture that allows easy reprogramming with different waveforms and operating modes through the use of digital signal processing technology.
