Avalon 2017: Rockwell Collins to Upgrade HAWKEI Computing System

DTCS Will Enhance Fire Control Missions

At the Avalon 2017 Airshow in Australia on 2 March Rockwell Collins announced it has been subcontracted by Thales Australia 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 organic to the vehicle.

Following the acceptance of a first-of-type system, Rockwell Collins will design and support Thales Australia to develop, integrate and test the DTCS. Work under the contract began in Sydney in January and will run through February 2018.
