Rockwell Collins Renews Avionics Replacement Contract with Army's SOAR
Rockwell Collins renewed a contract with the Army's 160th Special Operations Aviation Regiment (SOAR) to provide helicopter cockpit replacement parts for its Common Avionics Architecture System.
“The overall goal of this program is to assist the 160th SOAR in reducing the amount of spares that are required on the shelf, so spares can be used where they are needed most,” said Scott Gunnufson, vice president and general manager of Service Solutions for Rockwell Collins. “This contract speaks to the effectiveness of our performance based logistics programs that consistently exceed our customers’ requirements for parts availability.”
The $17.2 million Life Cycle Contractor Support award provides Performance Based Logistics (PBL) support for all Rockwell Collins Cockpit Management System (CMS) and Common Avionics Architecture System (CAAS) components and associated peripheral equipment, the company said.
