L2 Aviation (L2) announced today they have been awarded an avionics installation subcontract from Collins Aerospace. L2’s Remote Avionics Modification Services (RAMS) teams will install the Mode-5 Automatic Dependent Surveillance-Broadcast (ADS-B) upgrades for the U.S. Air Force KC-10 Extender Aerial Refueling Tanker Fleet under Solicitation Number FA8105-19-R-0006.
L2 Aviation will provide multiple Contract Field Teams to complete 58 KC-10 installations at select sites around the United States, most efficient for Air Force operations. Based on L2’s long-standing remote installation success, completing projects in the least amount of aircraft downtime, L2 was selected by Collins Aerospace to perform four concurrent modification lines, to meet the KC-10’s fleet Mode-5/ADS-B activation goals.
Mark Lebovitz, President L2 Aviation, said, “The KC-10 ADS-B scope is an important program award for L2 Aviation as we build on our 22-year history of successful remote installations, minimizing aircraft out of service time, and expanding our solutions into the military and government segments. This award demonstrates our never-ending commitment supporting the military with our Contractor Field Teams, Group A-kit Manufacturing, and Avionics Integration Capabilities.”
