Operational Support of
MAF TDL Situational Awareness
Borsight is teamed with KT Consulting as the Contractors for the Mobility Air Force (MAF) Tactical Data Link (TDL) Situational Awareness (SA) Operational Support (OS) Program. Borsight provides Program Management, Depot Management, OCONUS FSR Operations, CONUS Training, Software Management, Cybersecurity Management, and Technical Refresh Integration for the C-17 and C-130J Dynamic Retasking Capability (DRC) and C-130H/LC-130 Real Time Information in the Cockpit (RTIC) systems.
Both DRC and RTIC systems utilize the Borsight managed Tactical Airlift Mission Software Suite (TAMSS) to integrate a secure data infrastructure with secret-level-data flows, processing and information display to enable the aircrew to view and control applicable network communications. As part of a 5-year contract, Borsight and KTC will support the 67 C-130J and C-17 DRC equipped aircraft and 174 C-130H/LC-130 RTIC equipped aircraft with spare equipment, cybersecurity patches, software updates, training, and technical refreshes.
KC-135 AEP Production
The U.S. Air Force selected Borsight as the Prime Contractor for NATO/NSPA to provide its AEP mission computer to be installed with the KC-135R Real Time Information in the Cockpit (RTIC) A-Kits. As part of a 5-year contract, Borsight will provide hundreds of AEPs to the KC-135 SPO to modify the entire Active Duty, Reserve, and Guard fleet of KC-135R aircraft.
KC-135 RTIC A-Kit Production
The U.S. Air Force selected Borsight as the Prime Contractor for NATO/NSPA to provide its KC-135R fleet with Real Time Information in the Cockpit (RTIC) A-Kits. As part of a 5-year contract, Borsight will provide hundreds of RTIC A-Kits to the KC-135 SPO to modify the entire Active Duty, Reserve, and Guard fleet of KC-135R aircraft.
These aircraft will also receive an enhanced Tactical Airlift Mission Software Suite (TAMSS) capability. Borsight’s upgraded version of TAMSS provides additional operational readiness specific to the KC-135R mission as well as the first-ever RTIC solution with Link 16 communications to be permanently integrated on legacy tanker aircraft.
As the NGB/A5R C-130H Real Time Information in the Cockpit (RTIC) Full Rate Production and Tactical Airlift Mission Software Suite (TAMSS) prime contractor, Borsight produces hundreds of RTIC kits to modify entire AFRC and ANG fleet of C-130H aircraft. The new RTIC/TAMSS suite enhances situational awareness, improves communications capabilities, and enhances airborne gateway options for the Theater Commanders.
Borsight is the prime contractor to Air National Guard (NGB) for Real Time Information in the Cockpit (RTIC) installations on ten ANG and National Science Foundation (NSF) aircraft. These LC-130 aircraft will also receive an enhanced Tactical Airlift Mission Software Suite (TAMSS) capability. Borsight’s upgraded version of TAMSS provides additional operational readiness specific to the ANG and NSF Antarctic mission.
As a subcontractor to Rockwell Collins, Borsight has been selected by the U.S. Air Force (USAF) to advance communications capabilities for its KC-135R fleet with the implementation of a Real Time Information in the Cockpit (RTIC) system. This marks the first time that this solution with Link 16 communications will be permanently integrated on legacy tanker aircraft.
Borsight provides engineering and operational support to Air Mobility Command and Air Force Research Laboratories as part of the Global Lightning program. As a subcontractor to Booz Allen Hamilton, Borsight designs, tests, and integrates the Global Secure Airborne Communications Software suite, with its accompanying hardware baseline, into the KC-135 and C-17 platforms to facilitate rapid testing and evaluation of next-generation, high bandwidth datalinks. As the MAF fleet datalink experts, Borsight provides innovative and experienced insights into tactical datalink capabilities for the 21st century HVA airframe.
F-16 ASQ-236 Pylon
Borsight is the Prime Contractor for two programs with Air Force Sustainment Center-Hill. The first consists of assembly for the F-16 ASQ-236 Group B Pylon and Harness Kits. The second is to sustain the F-16 Harnesses, Parts, and Kits IDIQ.
The HH-60 Avionics Communications Suite Upgrades (ACSU) is a USAF TCTO modification that improves the HH-60 Aircrew’s Situational Awareness using real-time, reliable, and multi-spectrum communication capabilities. As a Prime contractor to NATO, Borsight produces, manufactures, and installs ACSU modifications in the ANG and USAF Reserve as well as at ACC and AETC locations.
RC-26 Block 25
Working with AECOM as the RC-26 Block 25 avionics modification subcontractor, Borsight performed extensive structural and aeronautical engineering, designed comprehensive technical drawing packages, and made substantial software, hardware, and wiring modification requirements to modernize the Fairchild Metroliner SA227.
Borsight continues to provide sustainment support to the modified and modernized RC-26 Intelligence, Surveillance,and Reconnaissance (ISR) aircraft that are being used to support federal, state, and local law enforcement as well as providing natural disaster assistance.
