NEW YORK, Feb. 10 -- L-3 Communications announced today that its Display Systems Div. has been awarded a contract from Marshall Aerospace to provide electronic flight instruments/radar display units (EFI/RDU) for the Royal Australian Air Force's C-130 aircraft.
This multiyear contract is valued at over $3 million.
L-3 will manufacture 5.5-inch color active matrix LCD-based displays. L-3's EFI/RDU is a form-fit-functional replacement display for outdated attitude direction indicators, horizon situation indicators and radar display units. Five EFI/RDU displays will be installed in the cockpit, replacing the older electromechanical instruments. The displays are night vision imaging system-compatible and provide dual GPS/TACAN distance-to-go readouts.
The EFI/RDU display and other L-3 display products will be exhibited at the Australian International Airshow, Hall C/Stand 317, this week at the Avalon Airport in Geelong, Victoria.
