Navy Testing Carrier-based Asw Aircraft Avionics
Johnsville, Pa.—First flight tests to evaluate the effectiveness of an integrated avionics system for a carrier-based anti-submarine warfare (VS) aircraft are starting at the Naval Air Test Center at Patuxent River, Md. The VS-type avionics system is a direct outgrowth of the Project A-New system developed here at the Naval Air Development Center for the Lockheed P-3C Orion (AW&ST Mar. 1, 1965, p. 36; Mar. 27, 1967, p. 72).
