The U.S. Naval Air Systems command awarded Lockheed Martin a $30 million contract to integrate new avionics and software on multiple C-130T aircraft as part of its avionics upgrade program.

Under the contract, Lockheed Martin will incorporate the Department of Defense's Future Airborne Capability Environment conformant cockpit, which gives the Navy unprecedented flexibility capability for reuse across multiple aviation platforms.

Lockheed Martin also will develop and deliver nine initial cockpit kits, providing the Navy with the ability to outfit its C-130T aircraft with the latest avionics and software technology, extending the fleet's mission capability for an additional 20 years.

"This award validates the Navy's confidence in our cockpit solution and expands our product offerings beyond the Common Cockpit for MH-60 helicopters," said Mark Swymeler, vice president, Electronic Product Line at Lockheed Martin's Mission Systems and Sensors business.

"This program is an integral part of the Department of Defense's avionics obsolescence upgrade program and will affordably enhance flight crew situational awareness, productivity and safety."

The contract includes a communication, navigation surveillance/air traffic management capability solution, complete display system upgrade, and will provide significantly improved human machine interface.

Work will be performed in Owego, N.Y., and is expected to be complete in the first quarter of 2016.
