Rockwell Collins, U.S. Navy Collaborate on FMS
The U.S. Navy is supporting greater levels of software reuse through a Cooperative Research and Development Agreement (CRADA) with Rockwell Collins for Required Navigation Performance-Area Navigation (RNP-RNAV) Flight Management System.
The CRADA between Rockwell Collins and the Naval Air Systems Command (NAVAIR) Air Combat Electronics Program Office (PMA209) will culminate in a fall 2015 demonstration of RNP-RNAV technologies aligned with the Future Airborne Capability Environment (FACE™) standard. This RNP-RNAV application leverages innovative commercial technologies that are currently operational on commercial and tactical aircraft.
Rockwell Collins continues to build new products aligned to the FACE Technical Standard, NAVAIR’s Open Architecture Backbone and the U.S. Army’s Common Operating Environment. Rockwell Collins is a sponsor and founding member of the FACE Consortium, and holds multiple leadership positions at the steering committee and subcommittee levels.
