L-3 Mission Integration has selected Rockwell Collins’ Flight2 avionics for the Republic of Korea Navy P-3C upgrade. L-3 is a subcontractor to Korean Air, which is performing the upgrade.
The Flight2 avionics will be installed on eight ROKN P-3Cs as part of the first lot upgrade contract L-3 awarded. On completion of the upgrade, the four-engine turboprop will have a common configuration with eight other P-3CK aircraft upgraded under the Korea Lot II Maritime Patrol Aircraft program. Included in the Flight2 avionics upgrade are new primary flight displays, flight management system, communications radios, navigation sensors and surveillance systems.
“Republic of Korea Navy pilots will experience greater situational awareness and communications capabilities with the highly advanced avionics onboard these aircraft,” said Troy Brunk, Rockwell Collins (Booth Q79), vice president and general manager of airborne solutions. “We look forward to continuing our long legacy of helping ROKN P-3 pilots achieve their missions with these important upgrades.”
