Rockwell Collins has been selected by the U.S. Navy to provide an upgrade to the E-2D Advanced Hawkeye Integrated Training System (HITS). The initial contract is valued at $26 million with a potential total value of $40 million.
The upgrade includes an operational flight trainer, provided by subcontractor ASI, modifications to the tactics trainer, a modification to the maintenance trainer, and spares.
“Our expertise and experience in developing tactics trainers has been a differentiator, resulting in our customer receiving quality and value,” said LeAnn Ridgeway, vice president and general manager of Simulation & Training Solutions for Rockwell Collins. “When customers have complex challenges, we are able to meet those training requirements with fully integrated systems.”
Rockwell Collins was previously selected as the prime contractor for the major training systems on the E-2D Advanced Hawkeye, the Navy’s replacement for the E-2C. These training systems include the Hawkeye Integrated Training System for Aircrew (HITS-A) and the Hawkeye Integrated Training System for Maintenance (HITS-M).
By leveraging strengths in avionic systems development and training systems design, Rockwell Collins delivers total integrated training solutions that span the entire training life cycle, from instructional systems design through fully integrated high-fidelity training systems and support.
