Major Projects
IRWR Upgrade (AN/AAR-44B)
• Requirement
– Stay in line with USAF configuration
– Take benefit of operational enhanced
performances (upgrade Sensor Unit)
• Improved Detection Range
• Improved False Alarm Rate
• Implementation
– 2010: Program definition and integration
study
• Compatibility with on-board Avionics systems
verified during ground & flight compatibility /
non-regression demonstration
– 2011: Start of series modification Sensor
Units
22
Major Projects
Medevac
• Scope
– Creating Aeromedical Evacuation (AE) capacity for tactical
transport of multiple patients by means of C-130
• Requirement
– Aero medical Pallet system (APS)
– a C-130 “463L” pallet based system
– 03 Patient Transfer Units (PTU)
– Low, medium and high care capability
– Modular system
– Quick integration in C130
• Timing
– programmed for 2011
23
Major Projects
Bleed Air Inspection
• Corrective actions
– Removal/ replacement of all old nuts with P/N
57979-4 on fleet and in stock
– Self locking nut will be systematically replaced
once removed
– Safety wire on bleed air clamps
– Update of all torque values mentioned in
technical documentation
• Inspections ongoing

Major Projects
NVIS
•
Scope
– Landing & take off in NVIS conditions
– Load & unload in black-out conditions
– Excluding formation flights, low level flights, tactical flights (short field Ops)
•
Evolution
– Aircraft Survey 2005 and 2007 by Marshall
– Existing C-130 NVIS solutions where possible
– Modifications required for
• Flight Deck
• Exterior Lighting
• Cargo Bay Lighting
•
Planning
– Prototype: August 2009 (by Marshall @ Cambridge)
– Series Modification: as from 2010 (by SNT during DLM)
25
Major Projects
Loose Fasteners
• Encountered definitions in SOR’s:
– “ Fastener is loose by hand and / or with typical black circle around the head
of a fastener ”
– “Any fasteners that can be turned by hand are deemed to be defective and
requiring immediate replacement”
• Definition LM Aero
– July ’09 : “A fastener that is turnable by hand is certainly loose. A dirty
and/or black circle around the head of a fastener is often indicative of
looseness and as such should be checked closely for looseness. However, the
presence of the circle alone does not confirm looseness”… But definition not
applicable in all situations
– LM Aero further clarified their position (based on an additional request from
BD, Nov – Dec ’09)
– LM Aero stated to provide further information at the upcoming HOC (EMS –
Jul 10)
27
Conclusions
• Aging Fleet (40 years old)
– Preventive actions taken to keep structural integrity
– Close usage monitoring
– Continuous maintenance program review to assure flight
safety
• BD C130 Fleet fits the operational needs
– Permanent assessment
