EFFICIENT LOAD PLANNING
In modern military aircraft, speed is of the essence. Faster load planning means less time on the ground and reduced vulnerability in operational areas, while a better planned load increases aircraft safety and stability.
Optimising Safety, Logistics and Fuel Efficiency
Load Planner C130 Hercules is a Windows-based stand-alone software product designed to help loadmasters and mission planners create highly detailed load plans for use with Lockheed C-130 Hercules aircraft. This helps you get load management jobs done faster and more efficiently – at every stage of the mission.
Load Planner - Product Highlights
- Increases aircraft safety and stability
- Reduces time on the ground and vulnerability in operational areas
- Faster, more effective planning with less manpower
- Increases mission flexibility and ad-hoc capabilities
- Lower fuel costs, reduced maintenance costs
- Helps avoid mistakes and problems
Load Planner C130 Hercules presents users with a familiar Windows-based graphical user interface. It provides an easy-to-grasp graphic representation of the load plan, and you can drag and drop pictures of different cargo components as you load, to reflect changing priorities and any special concerns that arise while your team is loading or unloading. The familiar Windows look and feel makes this software easy to learn and easy to use. No special training is needed – you just get on with the job.
The software is pre-configured to help you deal with: HCU-6/E pallets, Euro pallets, Vehicles AirEvac modules, Passengers Customised cargo in special configurations, Ad hoc transport requirements and unforeseen circumstances.
Load Planner C130 Hercules gives logistics managers and load planners a tool that automates many aspects of the work involved. You can drag-and-drop symbols for a vast range of standardised military equipment, vehicles and passengers from the inventory into the load planner window. It’s ideal for rapidly calculating correct fuel loads for each mission, as well as on-the-fly calculations of aircraft weight and centre of gravity. You can also use it to do the sums for hypothetical loads and “what if” scenarios. This can help you save time later, if the exact specs for a load aren’t yet clear, or if details are likely to change at the last minute.
The Lockheed C130 Hercules has been the backbone of military tactical airlift for decades. This is why Systematic has developed versions of Load Planner specially configured for use with the most widely used first-generation version of the Hercules (C130H) and also the currently popular new-generation C130J-30.
Where it's used
Current versions are specifically configured for the most widely used first-generation version of the Lockheed C130 Hercules (C130H) and also the new-generation C130J-30 model. The software can also be ported for use with other transport aircraft, if required.
