The Air/Ground/Air Radio

The Air/Ground/Air, or A/G/A radio, is a VHF/UHF fixed-frequency or frequency-hopping radio that provides tactical air control from the battlefield. This radio is presently in use by the Canadian Army, its primary role being UHF communication between ground soldiers and airborne fixed-wing aircraft. The A/G/A Radio has a VHF capability which is used to communicate with the CNR(P) and, depending on the operational requirement, can be operated in either secure or non-secure mode. It is available in both Man Pack and Vehicle Mounted configurations.
