Rockwell Collins has been awarded $83 million contract to provide Common Range Integrated Instrumentation System (CRIIS) modification, integration and support to the US Air Force.
This contract provides for modification, integration, and support of the CRIIS, including design, development and testing of system and block upgrades, US Department of Defense said in a statement Monday.
The work is expected to be completed by April 18, 2021.
CRIIS consists of three “Increments” of capability. The first to be developed and fielded, called Increment 2, will replace the aging ARDS participant and ground infrastructure, and will provide significantly greater capabilities than ARDS.
Increment 2 includes pod and internal mount air participant packages, plus all ground and security infrastructure enhancements. Increments 1 and 3 are options that follow the Increment 2 effort. Increment 1 is for use on ships, helicopters, unmanned aerial vehicles (UAVs), ground vehicles and dismounted soldiers.
