Bell-Boeing Joint Project Office was awarded a $42.1 million delivery order from the U.S. Navy for non-recurring engineering to develop, qualify, test and integrate an integrated avionics processor into the avionics system architecture for the Marine Corps MV-22 and the Air Force CV-22 (NRE only). The military said the new processor will resolve obsolescence issues, add new network capabilities, increase data throughput for legacy 1553 network, and re-host mission computer capabilities that will significantly increase avionics system and operations readiness for the V-22 Program. Work will be performed in Ridley Park, Pa., and Fort Worth, Texas, and is expected to be completed in October 2014.
