CEDAR RAPIDS, Iowa. The U.S. Air Force Lifecycle Management Center (AFLCMC) selected Rockwell Collins to provide maintenance and sustainment of KC-10 avionics systems and engineering services over the next nine years.

Having recently completed the full Communications, Navigation, Surveillance and Air Traffic Management Systems (CNS/ATM) upgrade for the 59 aircraft KC-10 fleet, Rockwell Collins will now also be providing ongoing engineering support for the KC-10 Flight2 integrated avionics system.

“This agreement establishes an efficient path for the Air Force to keep KC-10 avionics updated as defense requirements and operations continue to change,” says Dave Schreck, vice president and general manager of Airborne Solutions for Rockwell Collins.
