L-3 Selects Rockwell Collins For USAF EC-130H Avionics Upgrade Program

Modifications To Be Made To Legacy 'Compass Call' Airplanes

L-3 Platform Integration has selected Rockwell Collins as the avionics solution provider for a communication, navigation and surveillance/air traffic management (CNS/ATM) avionics upgrade for the U.S. Air Force EC-130H aircraft.

The EC-130H CNS/ATM program calls for upgrading the Air Force’s legacy EC-130H Compass Call aircraft with avionics that provide compliance with international CNS/ATM airspace standards meeting necessary calendar year 2020 navigation performance mandates. The EC-130H CNS/ATM avionics suite will also address issues with diminishing manufacturing sources, lowering life cycle costs over the next 20 years.

”Our avionics solution provides the EC-130H aircraft with cost-effective CNS/ATM avionics upgrades that meet present and future civil airspace requirements,” said Troy Brunk, vice president and general manager of Airborne Solutions.
 
Rockwell Collins is a leading provider of cost-effective C-130 avionics upgrades, having completed more than 125 C-130 upgrades worldwide over the last decade. This program will provide Air Force EC-130H pilots with some of the most advanced communication and navigation equipment along with improved situational awareness to help them accomplish their missions.
 
Together, L-3 and Rockwell Collins offer proven C-130 CNS/ATM compliant systems and low-risk integration capabilities. The companies have worked together on military avionics and systems upgrades for other military customers and have direct experience working together on CNS/ATM-compliant solutions for other U.S. Department of Defense programs.
