Tactical Air Support has selected Garmin International’s G3000 integrated flight deck for the US Marine Corps (USMC) and the US Navy’s F-5 aircraft fleet.

This contract has been awarded under the US Department of Defense’s (DoD) F-5N+/F+ avionics reconfiguration and tactical enhancement/modernisation for inventory standardisation (ARTEMIS) programme.

The programme, which recently completed a major milestone, involves the modernisation of 16 F-5E and six F-5F aircraft that the US Navy acquired from the Swiss Air Force.

Once upgraded, the multi-role tactical fighter aircraft will be used for training purposes. 

Under the latest contract, Garmin will equip its G3000 system, including one large area display and two touchscreen controllers, in the aircraft’s cockpit.

This upgrade will provide safety and new tactical capabilities to the legacy airframes. It will also resolve the reliability issues present with the existing avionics system.

Garmin aviation sales and marketing vice-president Carl Wolf said: “It is an honour to team with Tactical Air and have our versatile G3000 integrated flight deck chosen for ARTEMIS contract with DoD.

“Garmin is proud to see our integrated flight deck technologies, deployed now on over 25,000 aircraft, also being adopted by US military and enhancing the mission and safety capabilities of our nation’s war fighters.”

Garmin’s flight deck system was initially selected by Tactical Air in 2018, to support F-5 adversary training aircraft fleet.

The G3000 system can be integrated with several mission equipment, including military sensors, helmet mounted displays and advanced electrically scanned radar systems.

It can also integrate with F-5’s existing mission computer to provide radar display, tactical radio and mapping capabilities.

The flight deck system will also allow the operators to quickly deploy new technologies in the future.
