Cobham Aerospace Connectivity has been chosen as a partner by Scientific Research Corporation (SRC) to upgrade ADS-B Out capabilities for the U.S. Government’s T-6A trainer fleet. SRC, headquartered in Atlanta, Georgia, will retrofit over 500 aircraft and aircrew training devices with Cobham’s RMS 555 Radio Management System ADS-B Out control solution, which avoids the need to install additional transponder control display units and associated wiring, greatly simplifying the modification.
The Beechcraft T-6A Texan II is a single-engine turboprop trainer aircraft originally designed by the Raytheon Aircraft Company. The T-6A is used by the United States Air Force for basic pilot training and Combat Systems Officer training, and by the U.S. Navy and U.S. Marine Corp for primary and intermediate Naval Flight Officer Training.
