"We are very proud of the Sapphire portfolio, and the launch year has been an exciting time for us," said Charles Houseago, managing director, Northrop Grumman Park Air Systems. "We are confident that 2015 will see Sapphire rapidly become established as the ATC communication solution of choice."

Included in the exhibit will be the new generation of the world's most widely deployed ATC radio, the Park Air T6.
