During the Paris Air Show last month, L3 Technologies announced that its Integrated Aerospace Systems (IAS) business is offering a global C-130 Avionics Modernization Program (AMP), based on a certified avionics solution fielded by the US Air Force (USAF).

L3's C-130 avionics modernisation solutions offer customers proven, affordable upgrades to meet international Communications, Navigation, Surveillance/Air Traffic Management (CNS/ATM) standards. The AMP avionics suite and installation will leverage L3’s existing deliveries to satisfy the avionics upgrade requirements of any C-130H operator.

“Having the only US Air Force-certified solution that is flying in both US and international fleets today reduces risk, cost and time-to-field for customers with mission-critical requirements,” commented L3 IAS Vice President and General Manager, Jon Piatt.We work closely with the Warner Robins Air Logistics Complex C-130 Foreign Military Sales programme office and look forward to offering this qualified and affordable upgrade solution.”

The production-ready modernisation solution includes integration of a qualified commercial off-the-shelf CNS/ATM avionics suite that can be installed on any C-130H variant at the L3 IAS facility in Waco, TX. Before the announcement at Le Bourget, L3 had announced the award of a USAF contract for the upgrade of 176 C-130H under the C-130 Avionics Modernization Programme Increment 2.
