The U.S. Army has extended its contract with Rockwell Collins for additional Transportable Black Hawk [helicopter] Operations Simulators (T-BOS) to meet a growing need for bringing training to where soldiers are operating.

The $35 million extension calls for deliveries through 2015. LeAnn Ridgeway, Rockwell Collins v-p and general manager for simulation and training, said, “T-BOS’s mobile nature saves time and resources by taking training to pilots in the field. It is the only U.S. Army-accredited flight training device for the UH-60M aircraft.”

                             The air, land sea-transportable flight simulator can be readied for training within eight hours of arrival thanks to integral power and environmental controls. More information is available at the Rockwell Collins Booth, No. 6119.
