Anodyne Electronics Manufacturing, a wholly-owned subsidiary of Structural Monitoring Systems, launched a panel-mount radio designed for special-role and multi-mission platforms, focusing on U.S. Forest Service and aerial firefighting operations.

Anodyne Electronics secured Yellowhead Helicopters as the official launch customer, committing to updating its entire fleet to the MTP136D radio starting in early 2024.

Yellowhead Helicopters, a Canadian-based company with over five decades of experience, played a crucial role in developing and testing the product.

The contract with Yellowhead Helicopters involves a fleet purchase order for 34 helicopters, with product shipping contingent upon completion of qualification and certification by Feb. 1, 2024.
