Sikorsky Aerospace Services has opened a rotary- and fixed-wing avionics center of excellence at its Derco Aerospace facility in Milwaukee, Wisconsin, the company announced on Monday. Sikorsky Aerospace Services acts as the aftermarket business of Sikorsky Aircraft Corp.

The center provides comprehensive avionics repair and overhaul services at the line replaceable unit (LRU), sub-replaceable unit (SRU) and component levels. Using specialized open-architecture test and measuring equipment, the center supports the C-130, F-15, F-16, F-18, UH-60, H53, S-76, S-92 and CV-22.

“The launch positions Sikorsky to fulfill avionics repair and overhaul requirements that traditionally used third-party services,” said Sikorsky Aerospace Services president David Adler. “Establishing this capability in-house allows us to better control cost and turn times.”
