L3Harris Technologies has selected Collins Aerospace as a subcontractor for a programme to deliver an integrated avionic system for the modernisation of the US Air Force C-130H Hercules transports.
The Flight2 integrated avionics systems will be delivered for the Avionics Modernization Program Increment 2 (AMP INC 2), which will result in 176 Air National Guard (ANG) and Air Force Reserve C-130H aircraft being updated with the suite to replace a series of analogue instruments currently on board.
This is the most recent work awarded to Collins Aerospace for the C-130H programme, having already provided the Flight2 avionics suite for other examples of the type, as well as providing other subsystems such as propellers, wheels, brakes, secure communications, head-up displays/enhanced vision systems, and advanced cargo-loading systems.
