ORLANDO, Fla., Nov. 28, 2011. Underscoring the growing need to bring training solutions to where soldiers are located, the U.S. Army has selected Rockwell Collins to provide additional Transportable Black Hawk Operations Simulators (T-BOS). The contract, valued at $35 million, calls for deliveries to be complete by September 2015.

T-BOS is a high-fidelity flight simulator capable of being deployed to forward operating bases. It is air, land and sea transportable and can be ready for training within eight hours of arrival due to its own integral power and environmental control unit. The T-BOS is equipped with UH-60M avionics including Rockwell Collins' cockpit displays.
