The TF/TA system is a combination of the Elbit Systems TF/TA head-up display (HUD) application and Northrop Grumman’s AN/APN-241 for an avionics upgrade on C-130 Hercules transport aircraft.
According to Elbit, an undisclosed international customer is expected to fly a C-130 with the TF/TA HUD demonstrator within the upcoming year.
“Implemented as part of a 'Glass Cockpit' concept, the system is positioned as a competitive and attractive enhancement for C-130 modernization and upgrading,” said Elbit in a statement.
