Crane to provide Antiskid Carbon Brake Control on USAF C-130 Fleet
- Further extends the capabilities of Crane's original proprietary Brake Control System fitted on C-130
Crane's Antiskid Brake Control complements new Wheel and Carbon Brakes being provided to the Air Force by Goodrich Corporation. The program is expected to generate over $40 million in revenue for Crane Aerospace & Electronics over the life of the program.

Crane's C-130 Antiskid Brake Control system supports Air Force objectives of providing a more efficient deceleration profile and extending tire wear. The Crane digital Antiskid Brake Control provides a better than 90% efficiency of braking and helps to reduce life cycle costs by eliminating analog parts obsolescence found in current C-130 brake control components. The system also includes a Visual Fault Display that enables rapid and timely fault isolation and facilitates streamlined maintenance actions.
Mike Romito, Aerospace Group President, said, "We are extremely proud to provide enhanced brake control for the U.S. Air Force C-130 fleet. With this retrofit, we are confident we can provide the Air Force with significant performance, cost and maintenance benefits for their C-130 transport aircraft."
