The Indian firm, Park Controls & Communications (P) Ltd. today selected the Rockwell Collins’ new 721S Fixed Site Ground radio as an integral part of an advanced telemetry system for the Indian Air Force.
“In addition to being the preferred replacement radio for 17,000 fielded GRC-171 UHF air traffic control radios, the flexibility of the software designed, IP-based 721S lends itself to seamless integration in a multitude of applications,” said Ram Prasad, managing director for Rockwell Collins India. “We’re proud of the new relationship we’ve established with Park Controls & Communications (P) Ltd., and look forward to working together on this important program for the Indian Air Force.”
The highly reliable, long-range 721S radio is fully interoperable with the legacy radios in use by military forces and offers remote control features for “lights out” operation, reducing manpower needs. The radio also features Rockwell Collins’ patented Clarity technology, which eliminates background noise in both transmit and receive modes. It is also configurable to operate efficiently in any co-site environment through the use of internal tracking filters.
