The firm fixed-price service contract takes effect immediately and runs through March 2018, said Rockwell Collins. As part of the agreement, Rockwell Collins will provide local avionics support equipment and engineering services on behalf of The Boeing Company to the RCAF 450 Tactical Helicopter Squadron, located at Canadian Forces Garrison Petawawa.

This contract continues our decades-long relationship with Boeing and furthers our commitment to bringing in-country service and support to the Canadian military,” said Lee Obst, vice president and managing director for Rockwell Collins Canada. “Our world-class service and support personnel will ensure that the CH-147 remains sustainable and operational for the RCAF for years to come.”

The highly flexible CAAS displays are optimized to provide superior tactical and flight situational awareness through embedded cognitive decision aids that reduce crew workload and improve flight safety and survivability with a highly fault tolerant design. The system’s embedded mission computing resources and mission systems software provide enhanced war fighting capabilities for the aviator.
