Rockwell Collins said Wednesday that it recently completed the first installation of a next-generation ARC-210 Gen5 radio on an HH-60G Combat Search and Rescue (CSAR) helicopter for the U.S. Air Force Air National Guard.

The work, performed at The Eastern Iowa Airport in Cedar Rapids, is a key milestone in the HH60G Avionics Communications Suite Upgrade Program, the company said. Modifications included installing four ARC210 Gen5 receiver-transmitters on the aircraft.

The addition of the ARC-210 Gen 5 radios will provide the HH60G helicopter platform with communication capabilities that will play a vital role in combat search and rescue and preparing for new Internet Protocol-based networking waveforms and connectivity, according to Rockwell Collins General Manager of Communication and Navigation Products Bob Haag.
