Rockwell Collins designed cockpit is featured on board the first CH-147 Chinook helicopter delivered to Canada’s Department of National Defence (DND).
“The CAAS cockpit will provide Canada’s military pilots with enhanced situational awareness and safety of flight while significantly reducing their workload,” said Troy Brunk, vice president and general manager of Airborne Solutions for Rockwell Collins. “We also continue to deliver on our commitments providing updates to the CAAS system for this customer on budget and on schedule.”
Brunk added that the Canadian Common Avionics Architecture System (CAAS) cockpit configuration includes an enhanced system architecture and tailored pilot-vehicle interface that fully meets the rigorous Canadian DND certification process.
The highly 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 system’s embedded mission computing resources and mission systems software provide enhanced war fighting capabilities for the aviator.
In addition to the advanced CAAS solution, the Canada CH-147 helicopter will feature extended-range fuel tanks, an upgraded electrical system, and aircraft survivability equipment that will enhance the Canadian Forces’ ability to operate in remote and isolated areas and increase their capacity to respond to disasters both at home and abroad.
Lee Obst, managing director of Rockwell Collins Canada, added that the company will offer in-country life cycle support for the CH-147 avionics system from its Canadian headquarters in Kanata, Ontario.
