IS&S President Shahram Askarpour stated, "The IS&S system will standardize the cockpits on the C-130 and L-100 aircraft making them Communication, Navigation, Surveillance/Air Traffic Management (CNS/ATM) compliant. The IS&S system is Night Vision Imaging System (NVIS) compliant and enhances tactical and situational awareness. This program will improve the reliability, maintainability and situational awareness of the C-130 and L-100 aircraft."

A highlight of the system is the IS&S Flight Management System guided by IS&S Beta 3 GPS receivers that provide RNP and LPV capabilities. "These capabilities further demonstrate the robustness and versatility of the IS&SFlight Management System and are unprecedented in this type of aircraft," continued Askarpour.

The IS&S Integrated Multifunction Standby Unit (IMSU) processes and displays altitude, attitude, airspeed, slip/skid and navigation information in an intuitive and concise single instrument display. The IMSU displays a Primary Flight Display (PFD) and a full 360� Horizontal Situation Indicator (HSI) to reduce pilot workload and enhance situational awareness.

Further, the system includes Primary, Navigation and Engine Instrument Displays with associated Control Panels and Data Concentrators. The Caution, Warning and Advisory Panel (CWAP) enables centralized cautionary and warning indications in the flight deck and provides an interface with the remote attention getters to enable flight crew alert of annunciated cautions or warnings. CWAP also provides outputs to activate warnings in the aircraft audio tone and voice alerting system.

Mr. Askarpour concluded, "This award by iAccess Technologies provides another example of the growing use of IS&S products for military applications. The IS&S Integrated Suite of Avionics provides exceptional system integration, performance, low cost, light weight and low power consumption, offering a great value."
