Rockwell Collins to Deliver New E-2D Tactics Trainer to US Navy

Rockwell Collins has been selected by the US Navy to provide a new E-2D Advanced Hawkeye Tactics Trainer in support of the E-2D Hawkeye Integrated Training Systems (HITS) III program. The initial contract is valued at $34.5 million with a total of $85.9 million on other E-2D training systems currently in service.

This is the fourth E-2D tactics trainer to be delivered to the Navy by Rockwell Collins. The system can be integrated with other trainers throughout the US and supports high-fidelity training in a Live Virtual Constructive (LVC) environment. The new tactics trainer will be installed at Naval Base Ventura County in Point Mugu, California and is expected to be completed by August 2020.

Rockwell Collins’ training systems claim to be adaptable and address the needs of other platforms performing intelligence, surveillance and reconnaissance (ISR), maritime patrol, and airborne early warning and control (AEW&C) special missions.
