Rockwell Collins announced today that it will be providing its ARINC knowledge-based support services as part of a five year, $37.4 billion Command, Control, Communications, Surveillance and Reconnaissance (C4ISR) Responsive Strategic Sources for Services (RS3) contract awarded by the U.S. Army. The contract, awarded to a group of more than 50 companies, has a five-year renewable option.
Under the terms of the agreement, the company will provide aviation-based command and control (C2) products, global networks and engineering services to U.S. government agencies and organizations, and will deliver continuous and uninterrupted worldwide operational C2 and engineering.
"As military environments become more challenging and complex, government agencies and military groups need management systems that can help process data and securely share it with all the entities that need it," said David Poltorak, vice president, Business and Government Aviation Services, for Rockwell Collins' Information Management Services business unit. "We're bringing our leadership in military flight deck design, integrated global communication services, and expertise in rotor and fixed wing engineering solutions to meet the U.S. government's C4ISR needs."
