GriggTech AMS5000M was provided through Boeing (formerly MDHC) to the Mexican Air Force for use aboard their fleet of MD530F helicopters.
The AMS5000M controls various combinations of CFD5000 (XM296-used on the U.S. Army's OH-58 Armed Scout helicopters) gun pods and LAU-131/A 7-tube rocket launchers.
Shown above is the cockpit installation of the ACP5000M Armament Control Panel in the MD530MG Defender helicopter.
This photo shows the ACU5000M installation in the MD530MG helicopter. The ACU5000M is mounted on the back of the pilot's seat in the cabin.
External electro-mechanical intervalometers were added later to enable the use of M260 7-tube rocket launchers. This system was developed specifically to control the Mexican Air Force LAU-131/A rocket launchers that include internal electro-mechanical intervalometers. Unlike the AMS5000, the ACU5000M does not include internal electronic intervalometers.
There is a considerable weight-savings advantage in using M260 light-weight rocket launchers instead of the LAU-131/A rocket launchers.
