U.S. Air Force C-130 Avionics Modernization Program

U.S. Air Force C-130 Avionics Modernization Program

Apache is now under contract to Boeing Aircraft to provide the interior NVIS lighting hardware for the C-130 AMP program. One of the major factors in the choice is our extensive Contractor Off the Shelf (COTS) status of hardware utilized by C-130 aircraft with many different mission configurations. Another factor is the fact that Apache self-imposes tighter restrictions than the specification covering NVIS equipment, yielding more consistent systemic lighting patterns and contrast ratios.

Apache’s role in the program has been expanded from furnishing hardware at the component level for the program to include fabrication of new Control Panels required by the Avionics modification and upgrade. Apache’s engineering department has worked very closely with Boeing Engineering to provide quality units that meet or exceed the program requirements.
