F-22 Depot Activation Team successfully completes milestones in 'model' partnership programCedar Rapids, Iowa - Rockwell Collins, as part of the F-22 Communications, Navigation and Identification (CNI) Depot Partnering Activation team, has successfully achieved two major program milestones that will enable Warner Robins Air Logistics Center (WRALC) to become the depot-level maintenance and repair location of F-22 CNI avionics.
The most recent demonstrations included the completion of the 1-Channel Receiver and 5-Channel Receiver repair capability and proved the ability of depot personnel to successfully troubleshoot and repair F-22 aircraft utilizing the Rockwell Collins-developed test program sets. Personnel correctly identified the failing subassemblies, enabling successful repair using the repair manual and spares kit. The demonstration constitutes the depot's first repair of this Rockwell Collins equipment.

"This program serves as a model for depot partnerships, planned or in progress, where Rockwell Collins shares technology and skill sets to support the Department of Defense to enhance operational readiness and its ability to perform maintenance, repair and overhaul of defense systems," said Scott Gunnufson, vice president and general manager of Service Solutions for Rockwell Collins. "Our close working relationship with the U.S. Air Force, Lockheed Martin and the WRALC has helped the team form a strong public-private partnership."
