CEDAR RAPIDS, Iowa --- Rockwell Collins has been selected by Sikorsky Aircraft Corp. to provide avionics, simulators, training and support on its S-92 platform for the Canadian Maritime Helicopter Program.
The program has a potential value of more than $100 million to Rockwell Collins over the 20-year life of the program.
"This agreement demonstrates that Rockwell Collins provides a complete rotary wing cockpit solution to our customers," said Woody Hogle Jr., vice president and general manager of Integrated Systems for Rockwell Collins Government Systems. "Our solution includes equipment, development and integration, as well as training and support throughout the duration of the program."
Equipment selected for the program includes Rockwell Collins' integrated cockpit solution for the S-92, as well as the new Rockwell Collins EyeHUDââ€žÂ¢ helmet mounted display, two (2) Level D equivalent full-flight simulators and communications products. The concurrent development of the simulator and aircraft systems will allow Rockwell Collins to integrate the simulation hooks into the avionics development to provide the end user an integrated training system that will maintain currency between the aircraft systems and full flight simulators.
