CALGARY, Alberta, May 6 (UPI) -- Flyht Aerospace Solutions Ltd. of Canada reports it is supplying the Automated Flight Information Reporting System 228B for use on C-130 aircraft.

The AFIRS 228 system only provides enhanced voice and data communications to C-130 crews and, in the event of an emergency aboard the aircraft, its data streaming mode streams information normally secured in the black box to designated sites on the ground.

The order received from an unidentified integrator was for three units for an unidentified military customer in the Middle East.

The exact value was not disclosed but Flyht said its value was than $250,000.

A service agreement will be negotiated at a later date.

"We are excited to continue our success in the global C-130 upgrade programs and look forward to supplying the major global avionic integrators with the many benefits AFIRS 228 provides airlines," said Flyht's President and Chief Executive Officer Bill Tempany.

"This is the second Middle Eastern air force to employ Flyht's technology. We feel this is the start of a long and fruitful relationship with the customer in providing industry leading solutions to their customers."
