L-3 Completes 1st C-130 Aircraft Systems Upgrade for Argentina; Mark Von Schwarz Comments - top government contractors - best government contracting event

AFC130j EBizL-3 Communications has completed system updates to a C-130 military transport aircraft for Argentina under the U.S. Air Force‘s foreign military sales program.

The company's platform integration division refreshed the aircraft's communication, navigation, air traffic management and critical environmental and power systems, L-3 said Tuesday.

The updated C-130 is the first of five aircraft slated for avionics and systems refresh works and more aircraft are set to receive special electro-optical equipment prior to their delivery to the Argentine Air Force.

“The cockpit avionics and aircraft systems upgrades delivered by our team will increase the mission availability of these C-130 aircraft for the Argentine Air Force and help ensure they continue to fly safely for many years to come,“ said Mark Von Schwarz, president of L-3 aerospace systems.

L-3 conducted the first C-130 integration in Waco, Texas, and the company plans to refresh four more aircraft at its partner FAdeA's facility in Cordoba, Argentina.

Rockwell Collins received a contract in April 2015 to deliver an avionics architecture for the Argentine military's C-130 transport aircraft.
