Bahrain picks Rockwell Black Hawk simulator
Iowa (US), March 15, 2010
Rockwell Collins said it will supply its transportable Blackhawk operations simulator (T-BOS) to Bahrain to train the Kingdom's UH-60M pilots under a foreign military sale from the US Army.
Rockwell Collins is a pioneer in the development and deployment of innovative communication and aviation electronic solutions for both commercial and government applications.
The T-BOS will be delivered to Bahrain government to train Blackhawk helicopter pilots under a Foreign Military Sale contract administered by the US Army's Utility Helicopter Project Office (UHPO), according to a statement from Rockwell Collins.
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 organic power and environmental control unit, it said.
The Bahrain T-BOS is the second foreign sale of the Rockwell Collins developed T-BOS system. The first foreign T-BOS will be delivered to UAE this year.
'T-BOS is the US Army's standard deployable training device for the Blackhawk helicopter and now that capability is expanding to international markets,' said Ken Schreder, vice president and general manager of Simulation & Training Solutions for Rockwell Collins.
'The beauty of this trainer is that its mobile nature makes it possible to take training to pilots in the field, saving precious time and resources,' he added.-TradeArabia News Service
