Northrop Grumman has received a contract to provide Real Time Information in the Cockpit (RTIC) capability for US Air National Guard and Air Force Reserve Command C-130H tactical transport aircraft.

The enhancements will allow aircrews to communicate with ground crews during airlift, airdrop, and search and rescue operations.

Northrop Grumman is integrating the software and hardware that will enable real-time tactical information to be displayed in the C-130H cockpit and navigator station.

The displays will provide information obtained from Joint Range Extension Applications Protocol (JREAP) and Situational Awareness Data Link (SADL) communications, allowing the C-130 crew to not only see the theatre tactical picture, but also electronically identify its position to others within the theatre.

Under the $12.7m contract, Northrop Grumman is also installing the ARC-210 airborne military radio, which provides two-way voice and data communications and is software-operated.

Following a 12-month integration phase, Northrop Grumman will install the new RTIC capability in 32 Air National Guard C-130H aircraft.
