Becker communication system selected for C-130 Hercules AMP

Becker Avionics’ DVCS6100 Digital Audio System was recently selected as part of a larger C-130 Hercules Avionics Modernization Program.

The Intercom System modernization and avionics upgrade was selected by an undisclosed military customer, which will be managed in conjunction with a prime aircraft integration company.

The project replaces the aging aircraft ICS system and wiring with the modern state-of-the-art digital audio management system, the DVCS6100. The Becker Avionics DVCS6100 digital audio and intercom system provides improved audio quality and clarity for the C- 130/L-382 aircraft, as well as much greater system functionality and flexibility for the aircraft operator. Additionally, the new system offers improved reliability and reduced weight and wiring. The Becker DVCS6100 package installed in the C-130 consists of Audio Control Units (ACU) for Pilot, Copilot, Flight Engineer, Flight Instructor, a Navigators Console, along with several main cabin stations.

“This is an interesting and exciting project to tackle because of the aircraft size and mission scope,î said Brett Gardner, director of sales and marketing at Becker. ìThe customer came to us because of the reputation, features and well-known reliability of our DVCS product. This particular client joins the growing number of C-130 customers that have selected our DVCS6100 for their demanding mission profiles. Whether it’s for humanitarian relief, firefighting or transporting cargo, to upgrading and extending the service life of these critical transport aircraft, our DVCS6100 helps ensure viable tactical airlift capability.”

The Becker DVCS6100 was chosen by the customer due to its unique ability to effectively manage and control multiple audio sources in the aircraft. Becker’s DVCS, with its software configurable profiles, provides the flexibility to specifically customize the system to meet the demanding operational requirements of C-130/L-382 aircraft.

The DVCS6100 design provides each customer with ability to match a wide range of operational requirements with only one system. The built-in scalability and flexibility reduces not only the cost and time requirements for constant re-engineering and certification for a tailored system solution, but also reduces the learning curve for integration, maintenance and troubleshooting time. Through software programming options, the system is both easily and quickly configurable to individual customer requirements, thus saving time and money.

The DVCS’ open system architecture technology provides for operational comfort and superior voice quality, ensuring that almost any customer requirement can be met, while providing crystal clear communication for crew and passengers.

The state-of-the-art Digital DVCS6100 will enhance the effectiveness of any aerial platform. When compared to a legacy analog audio system, Digital technology provides simplified installation, improved performance, reduced wiring and weight, along with reduced installation and maintenance costs. Furthermore, the comprehensive built-in-test feature enables line maintenance crews to easily diagnose/isolate failures and to replace system components quickly.
