[Satnews] The Rockwell Collins Talon V/UHF tactical radio system has been selected by the Peruvian Navy to be installed on their SH-2G Super Seasprite helicopters.
The Talon radio will provide secure voice and data communication capabilities to support the various missions of the SH-2G platform including surface and sub-surface maritime, blue water and littoral surveillance, and search and rescue operations.
Rockwell Collins’ Talon radios are part of the widely successful ARC-210 family of airborne tactical V/UHF radios with an installed base of over 40,000 units fielded on over 180 airborne platforms in over 40 countries including several countries in Latin America. It is a proven, high-performance radio system specifically designed to meet the stringent requirements of airborne platforms, particularly including helicopters. It supports secure voice and data communications and is interoperable with fielded ground and shipboard tactical radios.
"The Talon radio is becoming the preferred choice for armed forces looking to enable secure air-to-ground communications in Latin America, the same way it has been used around the globe," said Alan Prowse, vice president and managing director, Americas for Rockwell Collins. "The proven performance of this radio in the maritime environment will definitely enhance mission success for the Peruvian Navy."
