    US Army Chinook Support Contract


    Rockwell Collins, November 09, 2018 - CEDAR RAPIDS, Iowa – Rockwell Collins has secured a five-year contract with the U.S. Army Aviation and Missile Command (AMCOM) Logistics Center (ALC) to provide current component upgrades and additional component repair capabilities for the Common Avionics Architecture Systems (CAAS) on the Army’s CH-47F Chinook helicopter fleet.

    “With this contract, we’re able to upgrade the first generation of CAAS hardware at substantial cost savings to the Army,” said Rod Hall, principal program manager, Rotary Wing Services for Rockwell Collins. “Additionally, by including repair capabilities for the latest configuration of CAAS hardware, we’re able to expand the breadth of support provided which increases the functionality to end users.”

    Adopted by the U.S. Army as the standard for CH-47F cockpit avionics, CAAS provides flight crews with battle-proven situational awareness during missions. The system integrates multiple communications, navigation and mission subsystems through its flexible Flight2™ open systems architecture design and is currently fielded on over 500 aircraft worldwide.
