Rockwell to service UH-60 displays
Rockwell Collins has been awarded a five-year firm-fixed-price, indefinite delivery, indefinite quantity contract by the US Army to service the MFD-268C4 multi-function display (MFD) units installed on the army’s UH-60M Black Hawk helicopter fleet, the company announced on 5 October.
The contract is a follow-on that continues the company's long-term support of the army's Black Hawk programme.
The MFD units provide safety critical processing, advanced graphic engines, multiple video interfaces and Active Matrix LCD technologies. They deliver primary flight and mission display functions for the helicopter's operations, and are based on open architecture design features of the Flight2 avionics system.
Thierry Tosi, vice president and general manager, service solutions for Rockwell Collins, said: ‘Whether the displays are in need of an upgrade, repair or modification, this agreement provides army UH-60M operators peace of mind that we'll get them operational as soon as possible.’
