Rockwell Collins will deliver one Transportable Blackhawk Operations Simulator (T-BOS) and associated services to the Mexican Navy in Veracruz, Mexico, making this delivery the seventeenth T-BOS delivered to domestic and international customers for the UH-60M Blackhawk helicopter.
The T-BOS is a high fidelity Blackhawk simulator that trains the Mexican Navy’s UH-60M Blackhawk aviators in all skill sets needed to complete their missions safely in the new UH-60M Blackhawk helicopters. The T-BOS simulator’s cockpit has the identical form, fit and function as the cockpit in the actual UH-60M Blackhawk aircraft. It flies with the actual aircraft avionics software and flight dynamics data.
This specific T-BOS is the third of its kind with enhanced offerings that include an improved glass front projection display to provide visual portrayal of the landscape with high resolution collimated, depth perception, and the latest generation Rockwell Collins image generator with a highly detailed geo-specific database of the areas around Veracruz and Mexico City.
Rockwell Collins will deliver the solution for the Mexican Navy under a US foreign military sales program. The T-BOS simulator will be manufactured in Sterling, Virginia, with follow on service and support activities executed in Mexico. Deliveries are scheduled to begin in June 2017.
