By Tish Drake | September 12, 2008

Rockwell Collins was selected by the U.S. Navy to provide the E-2D Advanced Hawkeye Integrated Training System for Aircrew (HITS-A). The initial contract award is $68 million, with a total target price of $164 million, Rockwell Collins said. The upgraded E-2D Advanced Hawkeye will feature a new radar system combined with powerful digital processing and communications capabilities. Built by Northrop Grumman in St. Augustine, Fla., the E-2D made its first flight in August 2007, starting a testing program that will end in early 2009. Introduction to the fleet is scheduled for 2011. For related news
