Budget Activity
5 - Modification of inservice aircraft
C-17A under the Air Force's Aircraft Procurement budget activity, aims to support the modification of inservice C-17A aircraft to ensure their continued operational readiness and effectiveness. The specific goal is to enhance the C-17A's capabilities and address obsolescence issues through various modifications, such as the Replacement Heads Up Display (RHUD) and Beyond Line of Sight (BLOS) improvements. These modifications are essential for sustaining the aircraft's performance, reliability, and supportability, aligning with the broader objective of maintaining a modern and mission-ready airlift fleet. Additionally, this funding supports Rapid Global Mobility (RGM) platform-related rapid prototyping and fielding activities executed under the authority of the National Defense Authorization Act 2016, Section 804, as amended.

The program also focuses on addressing specific technical challenges and enhancing the C-17A's performance in both strategic and theater environments. This includes efforts to mitigate filter fire risks, resolve obsolescence issues, improve fuel efficiency and cockpit situational awareness, and enhance command and control capabilities. Furthermore, it supports homeland defense missions, domestic emergency responses, and military support to civil authorities as mandated by Section 1815 of the FY08 National Defense Authorization Act (P.L.110-181). Overall, the program seeks to ensure that the C-17A remains a vital element of America's national security strategy by providing essential flexibility for meeting mobility requirements in various operational scenarios.
