The GCP provides additional interface and control options for the GDR Nav/Comm integrated radio product when not installed with Genesys Avionics Suite. The GCP provides users with a single controller for VHF Comm, VHF Nav and UHF Comm frequencies. The GDR also continues to maintain third party compatibility with other approved Nav/Comm radio controllers.

“The GCP was designed to give customers as many options as possible when installing our digital radios as an upgrade solution,” says Jamie Luster, director of sales and marketing for Genesys Aerosystems. “The radios are already in use by several OEMs with our EFIS displays and there is a huge customer base that requires radio upgrades with a standalone display option.”

The GCP will be available starting in the first quarter of 2023. Pricing for the GCP will be announced upon completion of certification, scheduled for October 2022. The GCP will be available in the field through Genesys Aerosystems authorized resellers. Pre-orders can be submitted prior to the end of certification through authorized Genesys resellers.

About the Genesys Control Panel

The GCP is a remote Dzus-mounted radio Nav/Comm controller compatible with the Genesys Digital Radio Nav/Comm single box integrated product line, called GDR. The GCP provides command and control of the UHF and VHF communication and navigation frequencies managed by the GDR.

The GDR is a family of remote-mount, software-definable radios. They feature combined VOR/localizer/glideslope and marker beacon navigation and VHF communication with a frequency range of 118-136 MHz or 118-156 MHz and channeling of 25 or 8.33 kHz with power transmission of 16 or 25 watts. Integrated UHF 225-400MHz communication is also available as an option. The GDR is capable of establishing voice communications between aircraft, ground stations and other aircraft, as well as receiving and processing VOR beacon signals for Instrument Landing and Navigation Systems (LOC/ GS/MBR). The radio can operate up to 55,000 feet and between -55 and +70 Celsius. With 8.33 and 25 kHz spacing, the GDR is capable of operating worldwide. Finally, the radio has achieved Design Assurance Level “A”, the highest level of software safety rating, as well as MIL-STD 704E and 810G standards suitable for all market segments of the aviation.
