Transform Your Aging Legacy Systems

We offer immediate part replacement, an accelerated acquisition process and financial savings.

Avionics Modernization

Warfighters rely on up-to-date technology for success and safety on the battlefield. Battelle has the solution. With avionics modernization capabilities, we can deliver increased readiness, reliability, availability and maintainability to aging legacy systems. 


We want our military members to have the most current technology at their fingertips. However, frequently buying and training on new equipment can be expensive and time consuming. 

Some of the most difficult challenges to overcome include: 
  • System obsolescence
  • Rising repair and inspection costs
  • Equipment downtime
  • Vanishing vendors
  • Lack of supplier availability
  • Safety improvements
See how our tailored solutions can help you fight obsolescence with technology.

If you don’t have technical data for us to work with, we can reverse engineer the system and document it for future use.


Battelle can transform your aging legacy systems into modern, capable and reliable products. Our approach offers immediate part replacement, accelerating the acquisition process and cutting costs by 50 percent or more.

Cost-Reduced Avionics Module Manufacturing: CAP


The original unit’s design became obsolete naturally with the passage of time, but replacement systems are needed to sustain an aging fleet and keep helicopters flying.


The Caution Advisory Panel (CAP) is a dashboard display avionics module for the Black Hawk Helicopter, providing important helicopter status information to pilots. The CAP system contains custom circuit cards and fabricated mechanical parts.


Battelle manufacturing produces the reverse engineered and redesigned replacement CAP units at much lower cost than the predecessor design and technology. This happens with improved reliability and while filling varying customer orders – in all delivering thousands of tested and qualified avionics.
