The US Air Force awarded Raytheon Technologies a $46.2 million contract to upgrade the A-10C’s mission computer. The company aims to replace the old mission computer with Raytheon’s Common Open Secure Mission Computer (COSMC) for enhanced air dominance and sustainability.
COMSC is a scalable and platform-agnostic mission computer perfect for evolving operational needs. The program includes replacing the weapons stores management system to fully modernize the Operational Flight Program software environment and establish COSMC as the new central computer of the Warthog.
Here’s what the president of Communications and Airspace Management Systems, Denis Donohue, had to say about the system:
“This platform-agnostic system delivers the generational refresh required for the Warthog to remain highly capable into the future. We look forward to transforming and reinvigorating our customers’ platforms so that they’re equipped to face any mission, any challenge.”
