The first of 10 C-130 aircraft to be modernized with Rockwell Collins Communications, Navigation and Surveillance/Air Traffic Management (CNS/ATM) technology has been delivered to the Republic of Singapore Air Force (RSAF). ST Aerospace, based in Singapore, was a partner on the project.

"With this upgrade, the RSAF gains a modern digital cockpit enabling greater mission effectiveness for their C-130 fleet and providing them with access to global airspace," said Dave Nieuwsma, vice president and general manager of Mobility and Rotary Wing Solutions for Rockwell Collins.

Key capabilities provided in the upgrade include flight management system; multifunction displays; central engine instrument display; improved voice communication; digital autopilot and flight director upgrade; and advanced digital weather radar upgrade.
