Cobham Announces Successful RT-7000 Launch

Cobham Aerospace Communications has announced that the 2017 launch of their RT-7000 airborne tactical radio has surpassed expectations and sales forecasts.

Said John Payne, Cobham Aerospace Communications’ General Manager: “Enthusiasm for and sales of the RT-7000 far exceeded our projections in 2017, and the start to 2018 is just as promising for this ground-breaking tactical radio.  We look forward to demonstrating its capabilities to audiences at Heli-Expo, the Army Aviation Mission Solutions Summit, and other events around the world in the months ahead.”

2017 sales of the RT-7000 originated in North and South America, Europe, and Asia from across the aviation spectrum: fixed wing aircraft and helicopters; leading law enforcement, ISR, fire suppression, utility, and HEMS operators; flagship municipal, state, and federal government agencies; and international airborne military forces.

Cobham’s RT-7000 is a software-defined radio, with modules that may be upgraded as an operator’s requirements and mission evolve, so the aircraft will remain current with AM/FM and P25 today, and TETRA, LTE, SATCOM, HD video, and more in the future.  Recipients of the RT-7000 have noted satisfaction with the radio’s unique features and capabilities, including:

  • 29.7 – 960 MHz AM/FM P25 Phase 1 & 2
  • Tactile and touchscreen interface
  • Connectivity for 2 external handheld radios
  • Up to 3 embedded internal transceivers
  • Panel-mount or remote-mount variants
  • Embedded relay, simulcast, and relay/simulcast
  • Best-in-class NVIS Green B-compliant, multi-color touchscreen display

Cobham’s RT-7000 is manufactured in Prescott, Arizona.  Visit them at Heli-Expo, booth C1334
