WASHINGTON — Rockwell Collins will provide the U.S. Navy with a new E-2D Advanced Hawkeye Tactics Trainer under a $34.5 million deal, the firm announced this month.
The aircraft will support the E-2D Hawkeye Integrated Training Systems III program.
“The Navy will have the tools they need to maintain readiness and train personnel on the complicated mission scenarios involving the E-2D Advanced Hawkeye,” Nick Gibbs, vice president and general manager of simulation and training solutions for Rockwell Collins, said in a statement.
The aircraft will provide the Navy with training for the E-2D, which can be integrated with other U.S. trainers, the company said.
The new tactics trainer will be installed at the naval base in Point Mugu, California, and is expected to be completed by August 2020.
