Avionics producer Genesys Aerosystems announced receiving FAA technical standard order (TSO) approval for its Genesys Digital Radio product line.
GDR radios are designed to interface with a host controller/display including the Genesys IDU-680 EFIS via RS-232 or ARINC-429 serial interfaces, Genesys Aerosystems, of Mineral Wells, Texas, said in the November 10 announcement.
“The GDR radio line offers unprecedented capabilities in a compact, lightweight package,” said Gordon Pratt, Genesys Aerosystems vice president of business development. “With legacy radios becoming challenging to repair or costly to replace, a radio solution like our GDR will be popular among new aircraft manufacturers and operators looking for options to keep their fleets flying.”
The GDR can operate up to 55,000 feet and between minus 55 degrees C and 70 degrees C, and “meets the most demanding helicopter environmental requirements.” It has selectable frequency spacing between 8.33 kHz and 25 kHz, making the GDR a solution for operators worldwide, Genesys Aerosystems said.
