Rockwell Collins Navigation Selected for Global Observer UAS

(Cedar Rapids, Iowa, January 20, 2009) -- The Rockwell Collins Athena 411 Inertial Navigation, Global Positioning, Air Data, Attitude, Heading, Reference System (INS/GPS/ADAHRS) has been selected by AeroVironment for their Global Observer. AeroVironment is developing Global Observer, a liquid hydrogen-powered Unmanned Aircraft System (UAS) that will fly at an altitude of 65,000 feet for up to seven days, for the U.S. Special Operations Command as well as for other military and civilian applications.

"We believe our proven high-performance, high-reliability solution, embodied in the compact, light-weight Athena 411, will enable the Global Observer to achieve its unique mission and performance goals," said David Vos, senior director of Control Technologies for Rockwell Collins. "We look forward to working with AeroVironment to provide best-value navigation solutions for this advanced program."
