Cobham is at APCO International 2017 where they announced that fully automated test and alignment capabilities for Kenwood NX-5000 portable and mobile radios are now available on the Cobham 3920B Radio Test Platform.

This ensures proper interoperability and a uniform standard of performance within the radio’s network technology.
