28th November 2012 - 16:12 GMT | by The Shephard News Team


Rockwell Collins will provide a suite of avionics equipment for the US Navy C-130T Avionics Obsolescence Upgrade programme under a new contract awarded by the Naval Air Systems Command (NAVAIR). The equipment will be installed on 20 aircraft with work scheduled to begin in 2013.

The contract will see Rockwell Collins supply an avionics equipment suite, which will include the company’s MultiScan Hazard Detection Weather Radar, the new generation software-defined V/UHF radios, along with other communication equipment. According to the company, this equipment will enable the aircraft to meet current and future Communication, Navigation, Surveillance/Air Traffic Management (CNS/ATM) airspace requirements.

Dave Nieuwsma, vice president and general manager of Airborne Solutions for Rockwell Collins, said: ‘This programme will provide navy C-130 pilots with some of the most advanced communication and navigation equipment to help them accomplish their missions. Our MultiScan radar will provide them with unmatched capability in detecting and avoiding hazardous weather conditions. Rockwell Collins has consistently delivered on our promises to our customers and we look forward to doing the same for NAVAIR on this programme.’
