General Dynamics' radios to provide communications for Air Force's D-ILS General Dynamics Mission Systems' radios will provide the communications for the new U.S. Air Force Deployable Instrument Landing System. The system, built by Thales, will give pilots the precision guidance they need to land at locations where the existing air traffic control system is unavailable or where no infrastructure exists, including temporary airfields in austere, isolated locations. The D-ILS will use the General Dynamics CM-300/350 V2 air traffic control radios along with the Fortress ES2440 High-capacity Mesh Point wireless backhaul radios. The General Dynamics Mission Systems CM-300/350 V2 radios are the first VoIP UHF and VHF radios approved by the FAA for ground-to-air communications. The radios are being installed in airport control towers, FAA regional centers and training facilities nationwide.
