Rockwell Collins has completed its first Flight2 avionics system integration for the French Air Force’s C-130 Hercules transport aircraft modernisation programme, the company announced on 11 September.

Under its contract with the French Defense Procurement Agency, Rockwell Collins is to modernise a total of 14 C-130 Hercules aircraft.

Flight2 provides a next-generation communications, navigation, surveillance and air traffic management capability that allows the C-130H to comply with the most recent International Civil Aviation Organization standards.

Under the programme, Rockwell Collins will also install its dual head-up guidance system with infrared camera for asset detection and multispectral enhanced vision system to improve pilot situational awareness on France's C-130H fleet. These solutions will enhance the aircraft's operational capabilities and support specific mission requirements.
