Bell-Boeing to design new integrated avionics processor for V-22 Osprey tiltrotor aircraft

Posted by John Keller

PATUXENT RIVER NAS, Md., 18 April 2010. U.S. Navy avionics experts are looking to the Bell-Boeing Joint Project Office in Amarillo, Texas, to design a new integrated avionics processor into the U.S. Marine Corps MV-22 and U.S. Air Force CV-22 tiltrotor aircraft.

Bell-Boeing won a $42.1 million contract Thursday from the Naval Air Systems Command at Patuxent River Naval Air Station, Md., to develop, qualify, test, and integrate a new avionics processor for the Marine Corps and Air Force versions of the V-22 Osprey tiltrotor.

The new integrated avionics processor for the MV-22 will resolve electronics obsolescence issues, add new network capabilities, increase data throughput for the Osprey's legacy Mil-STD-1553 avionics data bus, and re-host mission computer capabilities to enhance avionics and operations readiness for the V-22 program, Navy officials say.

Bell-Boeing engineers will do the work in Ridley Park, Pa., and Fort Worth, Texas,, and should be finished by October 2014.
