Rockwell Collins has received a contract from the US Air Force Lifecycle Management Center (AFLCMC) to provide maintenance and sustainment of KC-10 avionics systems and engineering services over the next nine years, the company announced on 26 October.

The company recently completed the full Communications, Navigation, Surveillance and Air Traffic Management Systems (CNS/ATM) upgrade for the 59 strong KC-10 fleet. Rockwell will now also be providing ongoing engineering support for the KC-10 Flight2 integrated avionics system.

Dave Schreck, VP and general manager of airborne solutions for Rockwell Collins, said: ‘This agreement establishes an efficient path for the air force to keep KC-10 avionics updated as defence requirements and operations continue to change.

‘As a key provider for avionics support on the KC-10, we will be able to help reduce costs associated with keeping these aircraft operational and mission capable.’
