LONG BEACH, CALIFORNIA (BNS): The US Air Force has granted the C-130 Avionics Modernization Program (AMP) approval to begin low-rate initial production (LRIP).

This follows a successful Defense Acquisition Board Milestone C production review by the US Department of Defense and the Air Force, including engineering and manufacturing reviews, to prepare for LRIP.

Boeing also performed an extensive flight-test program to validate the system's design and development.

The first two LRIP aircraft are scheduled for induction in August and October at Warner Robins Air Logistics Center, where the Air Force will perform the Lot 1 installations. The first two kits have been delivered. Boeing will upgrade five of the 20 aircraft during LRIP.

The C-130 AMP improvements include a fully integrated, night-vision-goggle compatible, digital glass cockpit and new digital avionics that increase situational awareness and enhance safety.

The AMP upgrade will also bring avionics commonality to the C-130 fleet and flexibility in assigning aircrew, regardless of aircraft model.
