The first of ten C-130 aircraft to be modernized with Rockwell Collins Communications, Navigation and Surveillance/Air Traffic Management (CNS/ATM) technology has been delivered to the Republic of Singapore Air Force (RSAF). The company's Flight2 cockpit upgrade delivered by ST Aerospace provides the RSAF C-130s with a state-of-the-art flight deck and improved situational awareness.

Rockwell Collins has provided excellent support to ST Aerospace throughout the Avionics integration effort, which has enabled the team to deliver an effective and reliable system to the RSAF within a challenging project schedule,' said Lim Serh Ghee, chief operating officer and president, Defense Business for ST Aerospace.

Key capabilities provided in the upgrade include:

* Flight Management System upgrade allowing access to precision GPS approaches, preferred Air traffic control routings and search and rescue patterns
