Zen Technologies Ltd. and Rockwell Collins Inc. Unveil Rotary Wing Simulator for Indian Forces
Feb 27 15
Zen Technologies Ltd. and Rockwell Collins Inc. have decided to join forces to enter into the Indian military flight simulation market by unveiling a next-generation rotary wing simulator. The two industry leaders recently signed a Memorandum of Understanding to combine their strengths in simulation and training to offer advanced and high fidelity aviation solutions. The strategic alliance between Zen Technologies and Rockwell Collins will produce top shelf solutions while also ensuring cost benefits for customers across the region since the alliance's capabilities are indigenized, including in software, electronics and visuals. With the rotary wing platform launch, both companies aim to emerge, in the near future, as key partners to the Indian armed forces. The next generation Rotary Wing Simulator housed in an ergonomically designed cockpit is configurable and fully addresses both the flight and mission aspects of rotary wing aircraft. The simulator supports anytime, anywhere training and is a cost-effective, efficient alternative for pilot training in handling routine flights, emergencies and practice missions. Unparalleled realism in training is provided using geo-specific cultured terrains, operations flight profiles, and avionics that can be used to train both new and experienced pilots before any mission. The simulator will enhance combat readiness for crew members through a comprehensive training continuum that is customizable for all types of military platforms.

Rockwell Collins Expands DAS Manufacturing Facility in Sydney
Feb 24 15
Rockwell Collins Inc. has expanded its F-35 Lightning II distributed aperture system, or DAS, optical assemblies manufacturing facility in Sydney. In 2014, Rockwell Collins signed a long-term agreement with Northrop Grumman Corporation to produce optical assemblies in Australia for the DAS on the Lockheed Martin F-35 aircraft. The DAS is a multifunction infrared system that provides passive, spherical battlespace awareness for F-35 pilots by simultaneously detecting and tracking aircraft and missiles in every direction, as well as providing visual imagery for day/night navigation. DAS imagery projected onto the pilot's helmet-mounted display provides the capability to, in effect, look virtually at terrain and the rest of the outside world, through the floor and wings of the aircraft. The DAS works in conjunction with the Northrop Grumman AN/APG-81 active electronically scanned array (AESA) radar and other onboard systems to give pilots an unprecedented degree of situational awareness.
