8 million contract to Boeing Defense & Space Group to upgrade 10 E-6
The E-6 Block I Modification program addresses legacy system integration deficiencies and projected obsolescence issues by upgrading primary mission systems and establishing an open system architecture for mission avionics.
Navy's E-6 mission systems improvements, including, over the past decade, conversion of the entire E-6 fleet to perform missions previously performed by the E-6A Take Charge and Move Out (TACAMO) and EC-135 Airborne Command Post (ABNCP) fleets.
4 million firm-fixed-price contract by the Oklahoma City Air Logistics Center at Tinker Air Force Base, OK for the lease and maintenance of Boeing 737 aircraft that will be used for in-flight training of E-6
Take Charge and Move Out (TACAMO) flight crews.
Navy E-6 flight-crew members support the strategic communications and airborne command-post mission of the nation's joint chiefs of staff.
In support of the program, which is operated out of Tinker Air Force Base near Oklahoma City, Hughes Training is providing academic and simulation training for Air Force and Navy pilots, navigators and flight engineers who fly either the E-3 or E-6.
The paintings depict a variety of ground and flight crew training activities in the E-3 and E-6 aircraft and represent the dual nature of Hughes Training's responsibilities in both the Air Force and Navy training areas.
Hughes Training provides academic and flight simulator training for the Air Force's E-3 Airborne Warning and Control System and the Navy's E-6 flight crew members.
This E-6 aircraft is the last 707 aircraft to be delivered by The Boeing Co.
Boeing is very proud of the E-6A aircraft and its vital role in the Navy's mission," said Paul Collins, E-6 program manager.
