Rockwell Collins Awarded F-22 Display Contract
Rockwell Collins has been awarded a three-year, $8.8 million contract to provide Lockheed Martin and the U.S. Air Force with sustainment services for cockpit displays on 187 F-22 aircraft.
As part of the sustainment program, Rockwell Collins will train U.S. Department of Defense personnel to perform maintenance, repair and overhaul on the F-22 displays. The work will take place at Hill Air Force Base in Ogden, Utah, and at the company’s repair facility in Atlanta.
“We’ve formed a strong public-private partnership with the Air Force and Lockheed Martin, which is essential to the success of these types of programs,” said Scott Gunnufson, vice president and general manager of Service Solutions for Rockwell Collins. “By providing sustainment services while also sharing our technology and skill sets, the Air Force can be assured of enhanced operational readiness.”
Each F-22 aircraft cockpit features six Rockwell Collins combination projection and light-emitting diode displays.
