Cobham OBIGGS to Support Army Apaches
The U.S. Defense Logistics Agency at Redstone Arsenal has granted a $15-million IDIQ contract to Cobham to provide its on-board inert gas generating system (OBIGGS) nitrogen inert units (NIUs) for the Army’s fleet of Boeing AH-64 Apaches. The OBIGGS system displaces fuel tank vapors with inert nitrogen gas, lowering the risk of explosion. Installations are set to occur at Cobham Life Support’s center of excellence in Davenport, Iowa.
