Hercules avionics upgrade [AAD18D3]

21 September 2018

Paramount Advanced Technologies (Hangar 4, Stand W14) has unveiled an Integrated Avionics Suite (IAS) upgrade for the Lockheed Martin C-130.

The Integrated Avionics Suite has been developed to enhance cockpit capabilities and facilitate navigation, especially in the modern air traffic environment and during tactical operations. It assists operations in remote areas without ground-based navigation aids, and features heightened area navigation (RNAV) and GPS-SBAS capabilities.

The system also includes integrated 'glass' cockpit displays and offers enhanced landing guidance for tactical operations, while generating automatic search patterns for rescue work.

Paramount Advanced Technologies would install the upgrade, perform qualification flight tests and provide training.
