Rockwell Collins announced today that it has partnered with DRS Training & Control Systems to provide next-generation secure Air Combat Training capability for both domestic and international air forces.
The delivered capability will leverage newly developed security and instrumentation technologies from the Common Range Integrated Instrumentation System (CRIIS) with air combat training, weapon simulation, and aircraft integration experience.
The Joint Secure Air combat training System (JSAS) includes certified Multiple Independent Levels of Security (MILS) architecture, and a higher throughput data link to provide significantly higher training fidelity than with the current generation systems (while also meeting the emerging security needs of the warfighter).
“This agreement brings together two complementary capabilities with expertise in data links, navigation, and security along with ruggedized design to support the air combat training environment. The JSAS will bring the next generation of US and allied warfighters an improved Air Combat Training capability based on the CRIIS technologies,” said Tommy Dodson, vice president and general manager of Surface Solutions for Rockwell Collins.
He added, “The open architecture allows integration of third party applications to support future upgrades, advanced weapon simulations, and the emerging needs for supporting Live-Virtual-Constructive (LVC) training operations.”
