Embraer Defense and Security has selected L-3 Aviation Products’ GH-3900 electronic standby instrument system, cockpit voice and data recorder and micro- quick access recorder for its military transport aircraft, the Embraer KC-390, which is due to enter service in 2016.

“This is another example of how a commercial-off-the-shelf (COTS) product such as the GH-3900 has the flexibility to be adapted for military applications,” said Ralph DeMarco, vice president sales and marketing for L-3 Aviation Products.

Earlier this year, L-3/Thales joint venture ACSS announced that it had been selected to supply its T3CAS traffic management computer as the standard surveillance avionics equipment for the KC-390.
