Becker Avionics to provide ICS for C-130 retrofit
Becker Avionics has announced that it has recently completed an intercom system (ICS) modernisation and upgrade project for C-130/L-382 aircraft with an undisclosed customer. The work was carried out in conjunction with a prime US aircraft integration company, according to a 28 June 2012 statement.
According to Becker Avionics, the project replaced the aging aircraft ICS system and wiring with the modern digital audio management system, the DVCS6100, and was completed on short notice with a fast turn-around time. The Becker Avionics DVCS6100 digital audio and intercom system provides improved audio quality and clarity for the C- 130/L-382 aircraft, as well as much greater system functionality and flexibility for the aircraft operator. Additionally, the new system offers improved reliability and reduced weight and wiring. The Becker DVCS6100 package installed in the C-130 consists of Audio Control Units (ACU) for Pilot, Copilot, Flight Engineer, Flight Instructor, a Navigators Console, along with several main cabin stations.
The DVCD6100 enables the effective management and control of multiple audio sources in the aircraft, and provides the flexibility to specifically customise the system to meet the operational requirements of C- 130/L-382 aircraft, the company said.
