L3 Technologies announced this week that it is offering a global C-130 Avionics Modernization Program (AMP) solution based on a certified and fielded US Air Force C-130 avionics solution.
The offered AMP avionics suite and installation will leverage L3’s existing deliveries to satisfy the avionics upgrade requirements of any C-130H users, say the firm in a statement.
“Having the only U.S. Air Force-certified solution that is flying in both U.S. and international fleets today reduces risk, cost and time-to-field for customers with mission-critical requirements,” said Jon Piatt, Vice President and General Manager of L3’s Integrated Aerospace Systems business area.
“We work closely with the Warner Robins Air Logistics Complex C-130 Foreign Military Sales program office and look forward to offering this qualified and affordable upgrade solution.”
The production-ready modernisation solution includes the integration of a qualified commercial off-the-shelf Communications, Navigation, Surveillance/Air Traffic Management avionics suite that can be installed on any C-130H variant at the L3 IAS facility in Waco, Texas.
L3 recently announced a $499 million contract award from the US Air Force for upgrade of 176 C-130H aircraft for a programme called C-130 Avionics Modernization Program Increment 2.
