Cobham / SRC Announce T-6A Fleet ADS-B Out Upgrade Completion

Scientific Research Corporation deployed Cobham's RMS 555 solution

Scientific Research Corporation (SRC) and Cobham Aerospace Connectivity are announcing the on time completion of ADS-B Out compliance for the U.S. Government’s Joint Primary Aircraft Training System (JPATS) fleet of T-6A aircraft.  SRC, headquartered in Atlanta, Georgia, has successfully retrofitted over 500 aircraft and aircrew training devices with new ADS-B Out-compliant transponders and Cobham’s upgraded RMS 555 Radio Management System.

Cobham’s RMS 555 software/firmware upgrade significantly reduced installation costs and simplified the aircraft modification work by minimizing changes to the aircraft configuration and pilot operations.

John Payne, General Manager North America, Cobham Aerospace Connectivity: “This successful program is indicative of Cobham’s commitment to full life-cycle product support by helping our customers adapt to changing technological and regulatory requirements.  Completion of this program on-time and on-budget stands as a notable achievement for this business, for our partner SRC, and our mutual end customer, the JPATS program operations.”
