Rockwell Collins announced Thursday that it has won a contract from Boeing to provide avionics service and support for the Royal Canadian Air Forces (RCAF) fleet of 15 CH-147F helicopters.
The Rockwell Collins Common Avionics Architecture System (CAAS) cockpit is featured on the CH-147F Chinook helicopter, which was delivered by Boeing to the RCAF in 2013 and 2014. The contract takes effect immediately and runs through March 2018.
As part of the agreement, Rockwell Collins will provide local avionics support equipment and engineering services on behalf of the Boeing Company to the RCAF 450 Tactical Helicopter Squadron.
Lee Obst, vice president and managing director for Rockwell Collins Canada said, “Our world-class service and support personnel will ensure that the CH-147 remains sustainable and operational for the RCAF for years to come.”
The flexible CAAS displays are optimized to provide superior tactical and flight situational awareness through embedded cognitive decision aids that reduce crew workload and improve flight safety and survivability with a highly fault tolerant design.
The systems embedded mission computing resources and mission systems software provide enhanced war fighting capabilities for the aviator.
