Kent, Wash.-based Custom Control Concepts (CCC) has teamed with L-3 Platform Integration Division (PID) on a Boeing 747-8 head-of-state completion project at L-3's facility in Waco, Texas. This is PID and CCC's second collaboration and will likely lead to others.

The company equips the jumbo with its HD Inflight Entertainment and Cabin Management Systems (IFE/CMS); it specializes in integrating its systems with existing and third-party components, such as cameras, satellite TV, humidification and temperature control, and XM Radio, including all software design, electrical and mechanical engineering, machining, assembly, finishing and testing in-house.
