Rockwell Collins has been selected by Aero Simulation, Inc. to provide modifications to the B-1 Lancer training system for the US Air Force. Rockwell Collins will execute concurrency, obsolescence, and cybersecurity upgrades to the five current training systems including the Weapon Systems Trainer, Mission Trainer, Cockpit Procedures Trainer and two maintenance trainers. The enhancements will be made to align the training systems with the current configuration of the B-1 aircraft.
“This modification will ensure the Air Force has the tools it needs to keep pilots and crews mission ready and operating at high levels of competency with the latest technology installed on the B-1,” said Nick Gibbs, vice president and general manager of Simulation and Training Solutions for Rockwell Collins.
Rockwell Collins has more than 15 years of experience in providing broad-scope, complex simulation and training systems. A few key platforms include the E-2D Advanced Hawkeye, B-52 Stratofortress, E-6B Mercury and the E-8C Joint STARS.
