Lockheed C-130 Hercules

Lockheed Martin C-130 Hercules

Improve efficiency, productivity, performance, uptime, comfort and safety with Honeywell solutions for the Lockheed C-130 Hercules.

The C-130 military transport aircraft has proven its reliability, efficiency and its operational readiness in even the harshest of environments and combat theaters. This multi-role aircraft is in operation by more than 60 nations for missions including search and rescue, weather reconnaissance, maritime patrol, aeromedical evacuation, and aerial firefighting. This rugged aircraft is often the first aircraft "in," touching down on austere landing zones before any other transport to provide humanitarian relief after natural disasters.

For the C-130, Honeywell provides a range of safety and mission-critical on-board equipment for this important aircraft, including Auxiliary Power Units (APU) and generators, Radar, Radio Altimeters, Air Turbine Starter, Traffic Collision and Avoidance (TCAS) Systems, and Enhanced Ground Proximity Warning Systems (EGPWS). Additionally, Honeywell's industry-leading satellite communications systems are capable of adding consistent, reliable, high-bandwidth connectivity services to the aircraft, even in remote areas, providing a critical link from the aircraft to the rest of the battlespace and increasing situational awareness for the operator.

Honeywell provides a range of upgrades available for the C-130 that can increase the life of your aircraft:

Enhanced Ground Proximity Warning System (EGPWS) - Improves situational awareness throughout high workload missions by protecting against Controlled Flight into Terrain (CFIT)

Embedded GPS/INS Upgrade - Provides advanced performance navigation and enhanced velocity performance

Health and Usage Monitoring System (HUMS) - A sensor-based monitoring system that enables Condition-Based Maintenance (CBM) by measuring the health and performance of mission-critical components in aircraft

Weather Radar - Features long-range detection, ground mapping and advanced weather analysis capabilities to detect and re-route around storms

Traffic Awareness - Provides a greater surveillance range than ETCAS, significantly reducing the risk of collision while meeting current industry mandates for access to civilian airspace

Satellite Communications - A wide range of hardware, software and service solutions available depending on your mission requirements. See our military satellite communications page for more information

Main Engine Generator Shaft Disconnect - Functions as a ‘mechanical fuse’ that severs the shaft of faulty generators

Main Engine Generator Shaft Upgrade Kit - Operators currently flying the older configuration Generator Shaft Disconnect can install the upgrade kit, which contains a new shaft and circular polyimide spline adapter

Air Turbine Starter & Control Valve - High reliability, drop-in solution that provides more than 4,500 hours Mean Time Between Unscheduled Removals (MTBUR)

Cooling Turbine - Environmental Control System (ECS) components upgrade provides a 2 times increase in cooling turbine reliability

Anti-Ice Valve - Addresses safety concerns of incumbent valve’s flow body separation occurrences

Auxiliary Power Unit (APU) - Increases airflow for better ECS performance, expands generator capability from 20 to 40 KVA and uses longer-life materials for a 4 times improvement in reliability.
