Collins Aerospace to upgrade powers systems on E-6B

21st October 2019 - 16:30 GMT | by The Shephard News Team


Collins Aerospace has received a contract modification from US Naval Air Systems Command for engineering support for equipment on the E-6B aircraft, the US Department of Defense announced on 18 October.

The order covers non-recurring engineering support to modernise the High Power Transmit System (HPTS) installed on the E-6B aircraft.

This will include modernising weapons replaceable assemblies and subsystems of the HPTS to avoid obsolescence.

The E-6 Mercury Take Charge and Move Out aircraft provide airborne command post and communications relay between the National Command Authority and US strategic and non-strategic forces in support of the US Navy's ballistic missile submarine force.

Work will be complete in May 2022.
