New Cubic Technology Continues to Improve Transoceanic Air Communication.

Business Editors


Continued upgrades of the Aeronautical Radio Inc. (ARINC) air traffic communications system have resulted in an additional order, valued at $1.7 million, for Cubic Communications Inc. (CCI) 5 kW transmitters.

The contract follows a similar order earlier in the year for an initial batch of Cubic's 5 kW transmitters and HF receivers, bringing the order to date to $2.5 million.

CCI is a subsidiary of San Diego-based Cubic Corp. (AMEX:CUB).

The Cubic-designed CTX 5000 5kW transmitter contains the only commercially available digital signal processing (DSP), which allows engineers to easily upgrade voice communications capabilities via computer discs, file uploads and email. ARINC will save money and time by eliminating the need for major hardware changes.

The 5kW transmitter -- a spin-off from Cubic's CTX-1000 transceiver high frequency data link -- is the first of its kind to be certified for aviation communications by the FCC and meet International Civil aviation Organization (ICAO) standards.
