C-130 Electronic Propeller Control System (EPCS)

1 recipient will receive $2,500,000. This is a continuing earmark.
Year Enacted: 2005
Description: This component controls the pitch angle of the propeller blades and it is consistently in the top three readiness degraders and is the number one reason for in-flight aborts. The current valve housing is a significant readiness degrader and a high manhour unscheduled maintenance driver for the fleet. EPCS has the following Operational Advisory Group (OAG) prioritites: #4 Navy OAG and #8 USMC OAG. EPCS is a modern electronic propeller control system to replace the old hydro-mechanical system. This new system is similar in design to propeller controls on several commercial turboprops in service today.
