Thales names subcontractor for Hawkei integration project

thales names subcontractor for hawkei integration project

US multinational company Rockwell Collins has been selected by Thales as the subcontractor to integrate the Digital Terminal Control System (DTCS) into the Integral Computing System (ICS) of the Hawkei Protected Mobility Vehicle-Light system.

The DTCS enables joint terminal attack controllers and joint fires observers to seamlessly integrate with airborne assets, artillery and naval platforms. It is a flexible, wearable solution for ground targeting, air support and call-for-fire missions with the capability to be integrated on tanks and combat vehicles. Vehicle integrations enable the soldier to leverage more capable sensors and communication systems that are organic to the vehicle.

Following the acceptance of a first-of-type system, Rockwell Collins will design, support Thales Australia to develop, integrate and test the DTCS. 

Work on the contract has already started in Sydney and will run through until February 2018.

Managing director of Rockwell Collins in Australia Nick Gibbs said, "The collaborative relationship that our company has with the Australian Defence Force has provided a foundation for the delivery of reliable joint fires solutions under the Land 17 program."
