Boeing Upgrades US Navy’s Aircraft Systems

Boeing has delivered the first of 10 upgraded aircraft diagnostic and maintenance systems to the U.S. Navy and Marine Corps.

The devices, used for servicing military aircraft, consolidate depot level testing into a single station, improving efficiencies and lowering costs while maximizing use of existing equipment.

Boeing and the Navy recently unveiled the Reconfigurable Transportable Consolidated Automated Support System – Depot (RTCASS-D) at Naval Air Station North Island, San Diego.

After installation at Navy Fleet Repair Centers over the next year, the RTCASS-D will allow technicians to more efficiently test and troubleshoot electronic systems on aircraft that include the F/A-18 Hornet and Super Hornet; V-22 Osprey; AV-8B Harrier and other Navy and Marine Corps platforms.
