But in spite of the fact that over sixteen years of work has been put into the ECASS, all governments who have expressed interest in buying the system are continuing to leave L-3 suspended.
As with a semi-active hydro-pneumatic suspension, the Ecass can also be used to raise or lower the vehicle (which can be quite useful when the loading height into an aircraft is critical) or level it on uneven terrain.
In off-road conditions, an Ecass reduces vehicle vibration, pitch and roll six to eight times, says Northrop Grumman, and thereby cuts down crew stress and fatigue and improves soldier efficiency.
A new study determined that it would cost $3.8 billion to continue, while replacing it with eCASS costs $1 billion, and the Navy expects to save $1 billion a year by using the system.
The Navy awarded Lockheed Martin an $83 million contract for eCASS development, and a $103 million contract for low-rate initial production.
With eCASS, the Department of the Navy will enable a cost avoidance of more than $1 billion annually by averting the repair of avionics at the next level of maintenance or sending the parts back to the original equipment manufacturer, said Chris Giggey, deputy program manager for Automated Test Systems at the U.S.
eCASS advances automated testing to maximize aircraft availability worldwide.
Currently, the Navy has ordered 38 eCASS stations and is gearing up to purchase an additional 29.
eCASS will be the workhorse for avionics repair across the Naval Aviation Enterprise, said Chris Giggey, deputy program manager for Automatic Test Systems, of the U.S.
eCASS will replace the current CASS test equipment originally fielded in the early 1990s.
