In the video, Hoare discusses completion of the first system integration testing for the French C130 programme, which he calls a “major milestone.”

Rockwell Collins also recently provided a new mission computer for the HForce programme for Airbus, allowing the conversion of Airbus helicopters from civil to military.

In addition, Rockwell Collins is working with L3 to enable a video downlink capability. Finally, Hoare explains more about the Ground Early Warning and Control System (GEWACS).
