ARINC C-130B Project in Indonesia for Mission-Critical Communications Upgrades & Retrofit.
ARINC Inc is progressing ‘aggressively’ with the completion of its contract with the Indonesian Government to modernize five of its C-130B aircraft for the Indonesian Airforce, it was announced today.
The project, which began in early 2011 is on schedule and on budget and will help to modernize the transport fleet and upgrade mission critical communications for humanitarian purposes. There is structural work being carried out in addition to the retrofit of upgraded technology to enhance capabilities.
The work is being carried out by ARINC onsite, which enables the Indonesian Airforce to receive all the benefits of ARINC’s significant skills and knowledge, without having to bear the cost of the transportation of the aircraft to the Aerospace division of ARINC in Oklahoma.
All the parts required have been exported to the modifications facility in Indonesia and work is well underway. The key milestones have been reached!
ARINC offer innovative solutions to mission critical communications with superior satellite services over the Inmarsat network. They have been delivering mission critical communications for over 80 years and are well-placed in the industry, having an unparalleled reputation for excellence.
“ARINC Aerospace is uniquely qualified to perform this type of work,” noted Michael Young, Vice President of ARINC Aerospace. “We have far-reaching experience on multiple platforms and a broad range of capabilities. We are pleased that the project is going so well and that we are growing closer to the goal of enhancing the capabilities of the Indonesian Air Force.”
