Australian Decision is Near Avionics Upgrades for Aircraft
The Royal Australian Air Force is preparing to render a decision on bids from competing teams proposing to upgrade avionic systems on RAAF F-111C and P-3C aircraft.
Proposed upgrades are targeted for F-111C communication, navigation, display and computer systems. Texas Instruments already has been selected to provide upgrades to the aircraft's radar system. A primary element of the program will be to convert F-111C avionics from analog to digital operations. P-3C upgrades primarily will affect the aircraft's electronic support measures (ESM) systems.
Two teams are reported to be competing for the programs: a team of General Dynamics, ASTA, Computing Sciences Australia, and BAe Australia, vs. a team of Rockwell, Honeywell, C3, AWA Defence Industries and Hawker de Havilland.
