Rockwell Collins
: 11 September, 2008  (New Product)
Rockwell Collins has been selected by the U.S. Navy to provide the E-2D Advanced Hawkeye Integrated Training System for Aircrew (HITS-A). The initial contract award is $68 million, with a total target price of $164 million.
'This contract establishes Rockwell Collins as the leading supplier of instructional systems, media and training equipment for the U.S. Navy's E-2D Advanced Hawkeye platform,' said Ken Schreder, vice president and general manager of Simulation & Training Solutions for Rockwell Collins. 'We believe our track record in providing best-value design and support training systems for the Navy was instrumental in receiving this award.'

The E-2D Advanced Hawkeye will feature a state-of-the art radar with a two-generation leap in capability, as well as upgraded aircraft systems and Avionics that will improve supportability and increase readiness. Using this capability, the E-2D will provide area surveillance, communications relay, search and rescue coordination and air traffic control, and will provide advance warning of approaching enemy surface units, smaller targets and aircraft vectoring interceptors, and strike aircraft in an attack.

For the past eight years Rockwell Collins has delivered direct support to Naval Air Systems Command and the extended E-2C user community serving as the principal developer of simulation equipment for mission crew and maintenance training applications.
