Rockwell Collins’ avionics selected for Oman C-130

22nd April 2013 - 15:37 GMT | by The Shephard News Team


Rockwell Collins will supply its Flight2 avionics system for the Royal Air Force of Oman’s C-130 aircraft as part of a fleet upgrade programme being carried out by ST Aerospace. The avionics equipment will be installed on three C-130 aircraft, with work scheduled to begin in 2013.

The Flight2 avionics system will provide the Royal Air Force of Oman C-130 aircraft with unrestricted access to global airspace by meeting Communication, Navigation, Surveillance/Air Traffic Management (CNS/ATM) airspace requirements.

The upgrade will include new primary flight displays, state-of-the-art flight management system, autopilot, communication radios, navigation sensors and surveillance systems including MultiScan Hazard Detection Weather Radar, Traffic Alert Collision Avoidance System, Terrain Awareness and Warning System and digital map. The capabilities resulting from the upgrade will bring the Oman C-130 fleet in-line with the world’s leading C-130 operators.

Troy Brunk, vice president and general manager of airborne solutions, Rockwell Collins, said: ‘Royal Air Force of Oman pilots will experience greater situational awareness and communications capabilities with the highly advanced avionics onboard these aircraft. Through our work with ST Aerospace and the Royal Air Force of Oman, we look forward to continuing our long legacy of helping C-130 pilots achieve their missions with these important upgrades.’

The installation and integration will be performed by prime contractor for the programme, ST Aerospace, at its facility in Singapore.
