CobhamLogo1 - ExecutiveMosaicCobham has won a potential $7 million contract from the U.S. Defense Logistics Agency to upgrade the fuel inerting system for the military’s AH-64 Apache helicopters.

The onboard inert gas generating system works to replace vapor from aircraft fuel tanks with nitrogen to minimize the risk of explosions, Cobham said Wednesday.

Kelly Coffield, president of Cobham’s life support division, said the company has provided inerting technology design, training, maintenance and support services to customers for decades.

Last year, the company produced OBIGGS nitrogen inerting units for the Army under a $15 million indefinite-delivery/indefinite-quantity contract.

Cobham says it has delivered more than 1,500 Apache NIUs worldwide and its OBIGGS technology has recorded flight time of more than six million hours.
