Cobham selected to provide passenger audio systems for Embraer KC-390 military transport aircraft

Cobham has been selected by Embraer Defense and Security to provide the Passenger Address System (PAS) for the KC-390 military transport aircraft to ensure broadcast announcements are appropriately heard in the aircraft's cockpit and cabin. Each KC-390 aircraft will receive one PAS, which consists of a Passenger Audio Amplifier and a set of loudspeakers, with the system provided by the Cobham Aerospace Communications strategic business unit in France.

With this selection, Cobham is now providing five products to the KC-390 programme: the Wing-mounted Aircraft Refuelling Pods (WARP), the auxiliary fuselage fuel tanks, the aerial refuelling probes, and the nose radomes.

The KC-390 is a Brazilian Air Force project for which Embraer signed the development contract in April 2009. It is the biggest aircraft to be manufactured by the Brazilian aerospace industry and will set new standards in the medium-lift market in terms of performance, cargo capacity, flexibility, and life cycle costs. According to Embraer, the first flight of the KC-390 is expected in 2014, with first aircraft delivery in 2016.
