LONG ISLAND, N.Y., 26 October 2006. The Boeing Company has awarded a contract to Smiths Aerospace for the supply of regulated transformer rectifier units (R/TRU) for the C-130 Avionics Modernization Program (AMP) aircraft.

The contract is valued at $3 million, with options, for engineering units, with additional potential sales of $34 million over the life of the program. The units will be manufactured by Smiths facility in New York with deliveries beginning in 2008 and continuing beyond 2016.

The R/TRU meets performance specifications with special features for load sharing, while providing the DC power source on the aircraft.

Each of the six R/TRUs operates in parallel, from different voltage sources without degradation of the system in the event of a single unit failure. The units convert and regulate 400Hz inputs into 28Vdc outputs.

These units will operate within the most stringent environments and are qualified to military standards for mission critical equipment.
