CEDAR RAPIDS, Iowa. Officials at the U.S. Army Aviation and Missile Command (AMCOM) Logistics Center (ALC) selected Rockwell Collins to provide current component upgrades and additional component repair capabilities for the Common Avionics Architecture Systems (CAAS) on the Army?s CH-47F Chinook helicopter fleet. The contract spans over a five year period.

Adopted by the U.S. Army as the standard for CH-47F cockpit avionics, CAAS provides flight crews with situational awareness during missions. The system integrates multiple communications, navigation, and mission subsystems through its the Flight2 open systems architecture design.
