Underscoring the growing need to bring training solutions to where soldiers are located, the U.S. Army has selected Rockwell Collins to provide additional Transportable Black Hawk Operations Simulators (T-BOS). The contract, valued at $35 million, calls for deliveries to be complete by September 2015.
â€œRockwell Collins has developed a strong track record of delivering the T-BOS on-time and on-budget with the kind of capability that has made it the U.S. Armyâ€™s standard deployable training device for the Black Hawk helicopter,â€ said LeAnn Ridgeway, vice president and general manager of Simulation & Training Solutions for Rockwell Collins. â€œIts mobile nature saves time and resources by taking the training to pilots in the field and it is the only U.S. Army accredited flight training device for the UH-60M aircraft.â€
T-BOS is a high-fidelity flight simulator capable of being deployed to forward operating bases. It is air, land and sea transportable and can be ready for training within eight hours of arrival due to its own integral power and environmental control unit. The T-BOS is equipped with UH-60M avionics including Rockwell Collins’ cockpit displays.
