Cobham Aerospace Communications’ RT-5000P radio has been approved by the U.S. Forest Service (USFS) for installation and use by USFS Cooperators in wild land fire situations.  Effective immediately, agencies cooperating with the USFS, including airborne law enforcement, airborne emergency medical service, State National Guard, U.S. Military, and other first responders may install the RT-5000P tactical radio system in their aircraft fleets in order to ensure seamless communications in critical situations.    
The Flexcomm™ RT-5000P Tactical Radio is also fully Project 25-compliant across all voice bands.   Project 25 is a public safety communications standard dedicated to ensuring fast and secure communications interoperability among local, state, and federal agencies when protecting the public’s welfare.  The RT-5000P transceiver delivers maximum interoperability AM/FM, 29.7-960 MHz, and delivers 10 watts across all bands for increased broadcast distance and clarity.        

Cobham Aerospace Communications Sales & Marketing Director, Tim Rayl, commented, “Cobham is proud to offer the USFS-approved RT-5000P to all National Guard, Airborne Law Enforcement, and first responder aircraft for fire suppression missions.  We believe this development will significantly improve inter-agency communications and ultimately enhance airborne public safety communications.”
