Rockwell wins new contract with Canadian Army


Rockwell Collins has won a new contract with the Canadian Army for the adaptation of an Android-based tablet for a military communications solution.

The company also plans to showcase its latest Canadian-made communications and networking solutions at the event, CANSEC 2017, which will be conducted between 31 May and 01 June at the E.Y. Centre in Ottawa, Canada.

Rockwell Collins Canada managing director Lee Obst said: “In Canada, we are focused on providing our customers with complete communications solutions with content produced in country.

"We look forward to the opportunity to connect with industry partners and customers during CANSEC as we collaborate on solutions for the future.”

The products to be presented include virtual, mixed and augmented reality solutions, software-defined radios and networking solutions for all domains.

Rockwell’s Coalescence augmented mixed reality system has been designed to merge the trainee's real-world view with a synthetic environment to enable effective training in a seamless, enhanced mixed reality.

The company’s Wideband HF (RT-2200A) is a remote-controlled, software-defined, digital signal processor (DSP) based, high-frequency receiver-exciter that will cater to the needs of the ground fixed site and transportable shelter applications.

According to Rockwell, SubNet Relay is the first masterless, self-configuring data networking technology that works with currently fielded HF / VHF / UHF radios.

The SmartBlade, ARC-210 and 721S are V/UHF software-defined radios suitable for all domains, the company stated.

"The company’s Datalink / Link-16 systems provide real-time, secure transfer of combat data for air defence, ground and maritime assets."

Rockwell’s TruNet networked communications solutions for air, land and sea customised networks allow ground, airborne and mobile forces to share critical data, image, voice and video, securely and in real time.

The Networked Joint Fires Canadian Joint Terminal Attack Controller is a dismounted software coupled with android system speaking VMF talking to the Networked Tactical Gateway in Link 16.

The company’s Datalink / Link-16 systems provide real-time, secure transfer of combat data for air defence, ground and maritime assets.

Rockwell said that its integrated digital vision system (IDVS) is a fully digital head-worn system that fuses multispectral night vision sensors with situational awareness information to support day, night and degraded visual environments.
