Save this for later

Lockheed Martin has received a seven-year contract from the US Navy to build and deliver more than 200 Electronic Consolidated Automated Support Systems (eCASS) to maximise aircraft readiness, the company announced on 4 September.

The contract is worth up to more than $500 million.

eCASS is designed to save money by averting the repair of avionics at the next level of maintenance or sending the parts back to the original equipment manufacturer. Maintenance personnel use eCASS to troubleshoot and repair aircraft electronics ashore and at sea, allowing them to return aircraft such as the F/A-18 and E-2D to operational status quickly and efficiently.
