Rockwell Collins
: 08 October, 2009  (Application Story)
Rockwell Collins has delivered 10 prototype systems for the U.S. Army Ground Soldier System (GSS) Increment 1 program, which will significantly enhance soldiers' effectiveness on the battlefield. The announcement was made during the Association of the United States Army Annual Meeting & Exposition in Washington
'We believe the Rockwell Collins team has created a system that will exceed nearly every aspect of the requirements set forth by the Ground Soldier program,' said Bruce King, vice president and general manager of Surface Solutions for Rockwell Collins. 'We're encouraged by the feedback we've already received from soldiers, and expect that our GSS Increment 1 system will be further enhanced with the input obtained from the warfighter during the prototype evaluation phase.'

King noted the U.S. government's efforts to embed members of their team within the Rockwell Collins team allowed rapid progress and decision making on the overall system.

Rockwell Collins, together with its teammate Elbit Systems of America, created a full soldier system prototype that improves upon combat-proven displays and Navigation Systems originally developed for the Land Warrior program, and incorporates superior video processing, mass storage, computing and information assurance capabilities. The system includes Elbit Systems of America's proven, soldier-worn Dominator® computing system, to bring the required computing capability to the program.

The GSS Increment 1 program focuses on providing mature technologies to provide improved situational awareness and network capabilities for the soldier, while minimizing size, weight and power. Rockwell Collins is one of three companies selected for the Technology Development Phase of the program.
