Rockwell Collins to Produce Military Test Range Instrumentation System Under DoD Contract

Rockwell-collins - ExecutiveMosaicRockwell Collins has received a $31 million contract from the Defense Department to build a test range instrumentation system for the U.S. Air Force, Navy and Army.

The company said Monday it will build the Common Range Integrated Instrumentation System to replace the Advanced Range Data System currently used at the three military  branches’ test ranges as the prime contractor and system integrator on the CRIIS program.

The contract covers 180 ground and airborne subsystems for seven DoD test ranges and initial spares for system support as well as support site activation with production hardware at Naval Air Station Patuxent River, Eglin Air Force Base, Edwards AFB and White Sands Missile Range.

Rockwell Collins completed a production readiness review for CRIIS in May in collaboration with the CRIIS System Program Office and the Test Resource Management Center.

The system will be designed to support a range of platforms such as F-35 and F-22 aircraft.

CRIIS will work to address DoD’s time, space and position information, platform test data and data link requirements, according to Rockwell Collins.

Work on the system will take place at the company’s facilities in Texas and Iowa.
