Product description

The needs for situational awareness, reduced crew workload and enhanced levels of flight safety for the U.S. Army's Special Operations Forces (SOF) are constantly changing and Rockwell Collins continues to stay at the forefront of those evolving needs with our Common Avionics Architecture System (CAAS).

Initially developed for the SOF MH-47G Chinook and MH-60L/M Black Hawk aircraft, CAAS is a fully integrated flight and mission management capability that provides exceptional mission effectiveness. As the common digital architecture for rotary wing aircraft for the U.S. Army, CAAS is one of the first fully open, non-proprietary systems that completely embraces existing commercial standards on large platforms. All CAAS systems are based on our innovative Flight2 Modular Open System Approach (MOSA) that uses widely adopted open industry standards, minimizing the costs of technology insertions and capability upgrades. By using our Flight2 integrated avionics architecture, the CAAS hardware and software can be easily adapted to the unique mission requirements of a broad spectrum of rotary wing aircraft.

Our CAAS program incorporates cockpit flight and mission management, as well as integrates multiple communications, navigation, weapons and mission sensor subsystems for reduced crew workload and improved operational effectiveness and safety. Furthermore, CAAS provides a consistent, intuitive user interface for displays and allows control of all avionics subsystems by each cockpit user.
