Rockwell Collins is showcasing its Common Architecture Avionic System (CAAS) Cockpit and Joint Secure Air Combat Training System (JSAS) with Multi Independent Levels of Security (MILS) architecture at the ILA Berlin Air Show this week.
With its open, customizable and fielded cockpit system, CAAS integrates multiple communications, navigation, weapons and mission sensor subsystems for reduced crew workload and improved operational effectiveness and safety. CAAS’ innovative avionics architecture allows for hardware and software to be easily adapted to the unique mission requirements of a broad spectrum of rotary wing aircraft. All CAAS systems are based on the innovative Flight2 modular open system approach that uses widely adopted open industry standards, industry standards, enabling technology upgrades of multiple aircraft simultaneously.
“By minimizing the costs of technology insertions with its modular architecture, CAAS has been proven to reduce overall lifecycle costs on aircraft in use around the world,” said Claude Alber, vice president and managing director of Europe, The Middle East and Africa.
JSAS is the next-generation system for secure, Live Virtual Constructive-capable training. It provides the first certified, four-level MILS training equipment in both airborne and ground applications, allowing for tethered and autonomous operations. MILS provides secure interoperability between 5th-Gen and 4th-Gen aircraft, bringing significant training benefit to all participants in a simulated, high-threat combat environment.
In addition to the CAAS cockpit and JSAS, Rockwell Collins will bring its Flight Mission Computer FMC-4000 family of radios, TruNet™ radios and TELDIX® space wheel.
