APU Example: C-130 AMP Upgrade
Aerocon provides a simplified design for an upgraded APU for C-130's equipped with modernized avionics packages. The new design is easier to maintain and operate, and has a much higher mean time between failures (MTBF) than the existing APU.
It shares parts commonality with the C-130H model APU engine and generator, thus decreasing required spare parts inventory. This allows the unit to be more extensively overhauled, minimizing replacement costs. Additionally, its increased MTBF relative to older units increases the time between maintenance intervals, ultimately lowering operator costs. The upgrade pays for itself after approximately three years of service.
