TCTS Inc II completes Critical Design Review

25th October 2019 - 11:30 GMT | by The Shephard News Team


Collins Aerospace Systems has announced the completion of Critical Design Review (CDR) of the US Navy’s Tactical Combat Training System Increment II (TCTS Inc II) programme.

Completion of the CDR, carried out with the US Naval Air Systems Command (NAVAIR) Naval Aviation Training Systems (PMA-205) program office, allows the programme to move into the fabrication, integration and testing phase.

TCTS Inc II is the military air combat training system that will replace the US Navy and Marine Corps’ training range infrastructure. Originally awarded to Rockwell Collins in 2017, the system enables the rapid adaptation of new missions and threats into training as well as enabling joint and coalition interoperability with fourth and fifth generation aircraft platforms.

Nick Gibbs, vice president and general manager, Simulation and Training Solutions for Collins Aerospace, said: ‘A key component to this programme has been the great collaboration between PMA-205, range users and our teammate Leonardo DRS. The new system will bring a heightened sense of realism to train our service men and women to be better prepared for emerging threats and situations.’
