Cobham Aerospace Communications has announced that they have begun production of a remote controller for its RT-7000PMR (Panel Mount Radio).
Part of the FlexcommTM family of airborne tactical radios, the new RT-7000RCDU (Remote Control Display Unit) connects to an RT-7000PMR and replicates the radio’s primary control and display in every way.
It’s essentially a panel-mount radio without transceivers, giving it a significantly shorter chassis for simple remote installation. With all the features of the panel-mount radio, the RCDU delivers instantaneous operation with no delay and features a customizable user interface.
The RCDU allows radio control in a secondary position in an aircraft, for users such as emergency medical technicians, ISR mission radio operators, airborne law enforcement tactical flight officers, search-and-rescue scanners, rescue winch operators, or anyone with observer communication needs.
Cobham’s RT-7000RCDU will be manufactured in Prescott, Arizona.
