Rockwell Collins has been selected to supply the US Coast Guard with Automatic Flight Control System (AFCS) control panels for its short range recovery helicopters.

The $3.7 million contract was announced on 6 February.

The company will produce 140 AFCS control panels, which will be fitted on the coast guard's MH-65E helicopters.

The panels are part of a planned initiative to improve the reliability of the AFCS.

Delivery of the panels is planned to begin in July 2017, with about three panels delivered per month.
