Lockheed Martin receives eCASS contract modification

9th December 2020 - 10:50 GMT | by The Shephard News Team

Electronics troubleshooting system is intended to improve USN aircraft readiness

Lockheed Martin Rotary Mission Systems is to provide 35 electronic Consolidated Automated Support System (eCASS) full-rate production units, under a $89.25 million contract modification from the Naval Air Warfare Center Aircraft Division.

The modification also includes 36 rack rail kits, 44 shore installation kits and 28 ship installation kits, the DoD announced on 8 December.

Work will be performed in Orlando, Florida, for completion in December 2023. 

The eCASS system is designed to save money by avoiding the need to repair of avionics at the next level of maintenance or send the parts back to the OEM.

Maintenance personnel use eCASS to troubleshoot and repair aircraft electronics ashore and at sea, allowing them to return aircraft to operational status quickly and efficiently.
