    <p>PAUL SEIDERMAN / SAN FRANCISCO</p> <p>The US forces are continuing a long-term policy of upgrading and refurbishing ageing transports to extend their livesby 35-40 years. But for large fleets of transport aircraft, life extension is no longer confined to modifications that assure continued structural integrity. Civil communication, navigation and surveillance/air traffic management modernisation is mandating new avionics packages, referred to as global air traffic management (GATM). Coupled with this is increasing pressure to enhance mission readiness and performance at lower life cycle costs.</p> <p>"Because of the lack of procurement in the 1990s, we need to maximise the resources of an ageing fleet and find ways to assess system problems through better onboard diagnostics and improved training," says Bob Ernst, US Navy ageing aircraft integrated product team leader. "At the same time, we have groups working on open architecture solutions for the integration of new technologies.
