This presentation is from an online industry day for the KC-135 Center Console Refresh (CCR) project within the Legacy Tanker Division. The agenda includes various one-on-one discussions with potential vendors such as Skytexus, Aery Aviation, ECI Defense, and others. The purpose of the industry day is to seek industry feedback on replacing the KC-135 fuel management system and multi-functional displays for approximately 300 USAF aircraft and potential foreign partner aircraft. The program office team includes individuals like Program Manager 1st Lt Kyle Appelt, Contracting Specialist Mr. Hassan Hammi, and others.

The document outlines the need to address obsolescence issues with the Integrated Fuel Management Panel (IFMP), Fuel Management Advisory Computer (FMAC), Tank Interface Unit (TIU), and Multi-Functional Displays (MFD) within the next 5-10 years to ensure continued KC-135 operations beyond 2040.

The scope of the Center Console Refresh includes upgrades to MFD control panels, MFD screens, IFMP, CCR upgrades, Control Display Units (CDU), and more. Technical requirements include environmental standards like DO-160G and MIL-STD 810, EMI/EMC compliance, Standard Data Bus 1553, power specifications, and configuration specifics for Block 45 aircraft. Questions can be submitted electronically for further clarification.
