Rockwell Collins to Upgrade Navy Hawkeye Training
On December 1, 2014, Rockwell Collins Inc. was awarded a contract by the U.S Navy to upgrade their current E-2D Advanced Hawkeye Integrated Training System. The E-2D Advanced Hawkeye is the latest version of Northrop Grumman’s E-2 Hawkeye airborne early warning and control aircraft. This new version features new avionics including the new APY-9 radar, radio suite, mission computer, integrated satellite communications, improved T56-A-427A engines, and flight management system. As more and more of these aircrafts gradually go into service, the U.S. Navy is requiring a higher training system. Rockwell Collins will provide upgrades including an operational flight trainer, modifications to the tactics trainer, a modification to the maintenance trainer, and spares. With an initial value of $26 million, the contract has a potential to have a total value of $40 million.
