Marshall ADG awarded French C-130H upgrade study contract
Marshall Aerospace and Defence Group (ADG) announced on 06 June that it has won a €1.25m study phase contract related to the upgrade of the French Air Force’s C-130H fleet.
Marshall ADG, Air France Industries KLM Engineering and Maintenance and Thales have come together to complete the project for the French defence procurement agency (DGA).
The study phase involves the design of an avionics ‘glass cockpit’ upgrade and the integration of modifications and role equipment to increase the tactical capabilities of up to 14 of the country’s C-130Hs.
During the study phase, Marshall ADG will provide detailed technical reports outlining potential solutions to mitigate risk and provide a priced proposal for the engineering and modification installation phases.
Steve Fitz-Gerald, CEO of Marshall ADG, stated: ‘We’re delighted to have won this study phase contract as we are extremely familiar with the C-130 platform and the application of avionics upgrades, special modifications and Integrated Operation Support programmes which are project managed to ensure a timely return to service for their operators’.
Marshall ADG is the UK MoD Design Approved Organisation for the Lockheed Martin C-130K and has performed more than 1,500 modifications and upgrades, for over 20 C-130 military and civil operators worldwide. Most recently, Marshall ADG completed a four-aircraft Cockpit Upgrade Programme and Cabin Safety Improvement Programme for the Royal Netherlands Air Force’s fleet of C-130Hs.
