“We are joining forces to bring flight dispatchers critical solutions to a complex communications environment,” said ACG Systems President Bob Dick. “Partnering in the airline sector makes sense because ACG is the dominant radio provider in the market, and Avtec builds the leading consoles in the marketplace,” Dick added.
