Innovative Solutions & Support (IS&S), based in Exton, Pa., was awarded a contract from BAE Systems to supply its Engine Instrument Display System (EIDS) for integration and installation on the U.S. Navy's C-130T fleet. Under the agreement, BAE Systems will install IS&S's EIDS within the next two years. Integration and installation is scheduled to begin in early 2010. This will be followed by a series of flight tests and subsequent installation of the EIDS on the balance of the aircraft. “EIDS provides the most cost effective solution for C-130 owners and operators facing ongoing maintenance issues with the engine gauges on their aircraft or the prospect of existing equipment becoming obsolete,” said Farhad Daghigh, vice president of Military Business Development for IS&S.
