US Army has selected Rockwell Collins to conduct collaborative studies on advanced system designs and integration processes for the Architecture Implementation Process Demonstration (AIPD).
As a part of the Joint Multirole (JMR) Mission Systems Architecture Demonstration (MSAD) Science and Technology (S&T) effort, this AIPD is informing standards, processes, tools and architectures for the Future Vertical Lift (FVL) family of systems, the company announced Monday.
Under the agreement, Rockwell Collins will assist the US Army in investigating advanced open-system architecture technologies and architectural centric model-based engineering capabilities necessary to achieve cost-effective system design and certification for future mission equipment packages (MEPs).
“These technologies automate error-prone, costly manual methods for specifying and designing products, which helps us to deliver value to our customers.” said Heather Robertson, senior director, Rotary Wing Solutions for Rockwell Collins.
The FVL program plans to develop a family of military vertical lift aircraft for the United States Armed Forces. Five different sizes of aircraft are to be developed, sharing common hardware such as sensors, avionics, engines and countermeasures.
Rockwell Collins will acquire B/E Aerospace for approximately $6.4 billion in cash and stock, plus the assumption of $1

The US Navy awarded Rockwell Collins a contract worth $142 million to procure Tactical Combat Training System. “Rockwell Collins, Cedar Rapids, Iowa, is being awarded a $142,356,338 cost-plus-incentive-fee, fixed-price-incentive, firm-fixed-price contract for procurement of the Tactical Combat Training System Increment II (TCTS Inc II) environment improvement of the air combat training with rangeless air combat and secure air-to-air and air-to-ground data link,” the US Department of Defense announced Tuesday
Rockwell Collins signed an agreement with Taqnia Aeronautics as well as with the latter's defense and security technology subsidiaries to collaborate for work on military rotary and fixed wing avionics in Saudi Arabia. The partnership will cover work on aircraft assembled, manufactured and updated in Saudi Arabia, the company announced today
IMP Aerospace has selected Rockwell Collins Flight2 integrated avionics system to modernize the cockpit avionics of P-3 Orion Maritime Patrol Aircraft for the Chilean Navy. “Chilean Navy pilots will experience greater situational awareness and communications capabilities with the highly advanced avionics on board these aircraft,” said Alan Prowse, vice president and managing director, Americas and Global Services Business Development for Rockwell Collins said in a statement Tuesday
The US Army is working on next-generation helicopters capable of flying at the speed of a jet aircraft and can be operated in extreme weather. The Army will test the new aircraft next year and will be aiming at speeds greater than 230 knots (265mph)
Rockwell Collins was awarded $27 million to activate a depot capability for the US Navy P-8A Poseidon aircraft HF-121C and miscellaneous radio components. Under contract through 2020, establishing this depot capability creates military jobs, reduces the repair pipeline and improves availability of aircraft
