Designed for tactical airlift missions, the C-130 is the primary aircraft for transporting troops and equipment for the U.S. Air Force and armed services around the world. Rockwell Collins’ avionics and display systems have been selected to provide Communication, Navigation and Surveillance/Air Traffic Management (CNS/ATM) cockpit upgrades for a number of C-130 aircraft customers.
Rockwell Collins provides total avionics systems solutions for several international C-130 upgrade programs. As part of our integrated offering, we supply the flight management systems, displays, autopilot, weather radar, Traffic Alert Collision Avoidance System (TCAS) and the complete suite of radio communications/navigation equipment. Installation of these components into the C-130 provides a highly integrated flight deck system with a glass cockpit for improved situational awareness, reduced crew workload and enhanced safety features, as well as all CNS/ATM capabilities. Rockwell Collins’ development of the 6” x 8” Multi-Function Display (MFD) family, specifically designed for the C-130 also brings expanded utility and capability to the cockpit. Rockwell Collins solutions have been selected for C-130 upgrade programs in Canada, Denmark, Greece, Jordan, Pakistan, Egypt, Thailand, Singapore and a North Africa country. More C-130s are flying with Rockwell Collins avionics than any other single avionics provider.
