L3 Technologies announced on 6 June that it has been awarded a contract valued at $499 million for the USAF C-10H Avionics Modernisation Program Increment 2. 

The requirements of the contract will see L3 design, produce and certify a number of solutions to modernise a fleet of 176 National Guard and Air Force Reserve C-130H aircraft. The main focus of the contract are aircraft availability, reliability and sustainability, as well as reducing life-cycle costs. 

Modernisation solutions include integration of a commercial, off-the-shelf avionics suite, along with L’s training integration and services. Development and production on multiple C-130H variants will take place at L3’s facility in Texas.

‘L3 is committed to delivering innovative, cost-effective solutions to ensure mission readiness in support of the US Air Force’s modernisation strategy,’ said Christopher E Kubasik, L3’s chairman, chief executive officer and president. ‘We are focused on providing an agile and low-risk approach to modernising the air force’s diverse fleet of C-130s, enabling these assets to operate well into the future.'
