Lockheed-Martin company has been awarded a $38 million contract to provide the
US Air Force A/OA-10 aircraft fleet with precision engagement capability through
installment of precision engagement production kits. The entire A-10 fleet will
be modified over the next five years with these kits for a total estimated cost
of $168 million.
The precision engagement program will enable the venerable A-10 to use advanced
precision guided weapons, including the Joint Direct Attack Munition (JDAM) and
Wind Corrected Munitions Dispenser (WCMD). The production kits will also
facilitate integration into the A-10 of advanced targeting pods improving
pilots' situational awareness.
The precision engagement capability upgrade also includes a Central Interface
Control Unit (CICU), which provides a digital stores management system, two
multifunction color displays, and new cockpit controls, and doubles the direct
current generator capacity.
