AIR 5276 P-3 Update Implementation

Prime contractor: L-3 Communications Integrated Systems

The P-3 update has provided an improved baseline to ensure the effectiveness of the Orion Fleet until the planned withdrawal date of 2015. Under this project, radar, data management, acoustic, navigation and communications systems were replaced with integrated systems. The project also provides training simulators, mission planning/debriefing systems, and engineering and maintenance support tools.

The project remained on schedule in 2004-05 and delivered the last aircraft to the Air Force in December 2004. All associated project deliverables are in service.

The under achievement against the revised 2004-05 budget estimate was mainly the result of exchange rate variations.

The project Integrated Logistics Support Plan will continue to provide services and spares for the next two years.

This project contributes to Air Force capability.
