Marshall Aerospace signs deal to extend legacy Herc fleet

Marshall Aerospace and Defence Group Canada has been subcontracted by British Columbia’s Cascade Aerospace to provide engineering and project management services for the RCAF’s CC130 Avionics Optimised Weapons System Management program.

The AVS OWSM program is one of three now underway to support the CC130 Hercules legacy fleet.

Marshall Aerospace is also the engineering subcontractor on the Primary Air Vehicle (PAV) OWSM Program, which has been underway since 2006.

The AVS OWSM program is intended to extend the reach for overall CC130 aircraft lifecycle management; the contract with Cascade Aerospace runs until 2016, with options to extend.

“I am thrilled that Marshall’s engineering expertise and project management capabilities will be contributing to the reliability and high availability of these aircraft,”said Steve Fitz-Gerald, CEO of Marshall Aerospace and Defence Group. “The CC130 AVS OWSM subcontract win solidifies the roles of Cascade Aerospace and Marshall Aerospace and Defence Group Canada in supporting the legacy RCAF CC130 fleet.”

Marshall’s relationship with the C-130 platform and its OEM, Lockheed Martin, dates back to the early 1960s. Marshall has performed more than 1,500 modifications and upgrades for over 35 C-130 military and civil operators worldwide.
