U.S. Coast Guard selects Rockwell Collins to provide the MH-65E fleet Radar Sensor System solution


Rockwell Collins, February 25, 2014 - ANAHEIM, Calif. – Rockwell Collins has been selected by the U.S. Coast Guard to provide the MH-65E Radar Sensor System (RSS) for 102 MH-65E aircraft.

Rockwell Collins’ RTA-4114 MultiScan Weather Radar with enhanced ground/shoreline mapping and a new maritime surface search mode will provide the Coast Guard with a lightweight, flexible, and supportable solution.

“Coast Guard pilots will benefit from MultiScan’s broad array of capabilities that provide reduced workload and enhanced situational awareness,” said Troy Brunk, vice president and general manager of Airborne Solutions for Rockwell Collins. “MultiScan’s solid state design provides high reliability and reduced life cycle costs that are vital in a cost-constrained budget environment.”

Under the Coast Guard contract, Rockwell Collins will provide an enhanced RTA-4114 radar with a new maritime surface search mode and advanced ground clutter rejection algorithms expanding the radar’s ground mapping capability for shoreline and over water use.

The RTA-4114 MultiScan Weather Radar system represents a major step forward in automation for helicopter flight crews. The radar automatically scans ahead of the aircraft and combines the returns through advanced digital processing and analysis algorithms to display not just precipitation rates, but the actual weather threats. It features automated tilt, clutter removal and gain management, as well as automatic compensation for many predictable atmospheric and climatic conditions.

About Rockwell Collins: Rockwell Collins is a pioneer in the development and deployment of innovative communication and aviation electronic solutions for both commercial and government applications. Our expertise in flight deck avionics, cabin electronics, mission communications, simulation and training, and information management services is delivered by a global workforce, and a service and support network that crosses more than 150 countries.
