CH-53 des Heeres erhalten neue Avionik<br /> Rockwell Collins has been awarded a contract from Eurocopter Deutschland to develop a German Avionics Management System (GAMS) for the German Army CH-53G helicopter.
The first two qualification/verification aircraft are scheduled for delivery in mid-2009. The GAMS will be based on Rockwell Collins' Common Avionics Architecture System (CAAS) and integrated into the new glass cockpit of the CH-53 G helicopter. This system will provide a modular open system architecture (OSA) cockpit and mission management system that includes a flight management system, new navigation sensors, five displays and a communication suite tailored and adapted specifically to German Army requirements. A majority of the development and production of GAMS is being performed by Rockwell Collins Deutschland located in Heidelberg, Germany.
