Support Equipment Validation Services

Support Equipment Validation Service

C-130 operators have a wide variety of proven pieces of aircraft support equipment (SE) to choose from to help maintain their fleet. In many cases, there is an upgraded or new piece of SE that was not originally required, but which will save the operator maintenance time and improve availability.
Lockheed Martin is offering a service to get SE validated and approved for use on the C-130. The concept is:

  1. Operator and Lockheed Martin identify the SE needed to maintain the airplane.
  2. Operator purchases the actual SE hardware directly from available suppliers,
    providing the customer multiple procurement options—potential cost savings.
  3. Operator purchases the Lockheed Martin SE Service and Lockheed Martin
    conducts the equipment compatibility test (with the operator furnished
    equipment) and generates the new job guide and/or fault isolation procedures
    for use on the C-130 aircraft.

The end result is that the operator's fleet now has the new SE along with the Lockheed Martin-approved documentation to use it.
