L3 Technologies’ Integrated Aerospace Systems (IAS) business announced that it is offering a global C-130 Avionics Modernization Program (AMP) solution based on a certified and fielded U.S. 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.
The production-ready modernization solution includes the integration of a qualified commercial off-the-shelf Communications, Navigation, Surveillance/Air Traffic Management (CNS/ATM) avionics suite that can be installed on any C-130H variant.
“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.
Earlier, L3 had announced its $499 million contract award from the U.S. Air Force for an upgrade of 176 C-130H aircraft for a program called C-130 Avionics Modernization Program Increment 2.
As part of L3’s ISR Systems business segment, L3 IAS facilities are capable of retrofit, modernization and production for both fixed- and rotary-wing aircraft, delivering a broad range of aerospace modification and integration solutions to keep military, government and commercial customers safe and mission-ready.
