Lockheed Martin said it reached an important milestone of its C-5 Avionics Modernization Program (AMP) with the induction of the first U.S. Air Force C-5A into the program. The AMP replaces the analog cockpit instruments and systems with digital displays and equipment. It also provides the necessary communications and navigational avionics to comply with Global Air Traffic Management (GATM) requirements. Lockheed Martin said there are 111 C-5s to be modified through AMP with 42 production airplanes completed to date. The AMP installations are taking place at Dover Air Force Base in Delaware and Travis Air Force Base in California and are scheduled to be completed in second quarter 2014.
