Collins Aerospace, an RTX business, was awarded an indefinite delivery, indefinite quantity contract with the U.S. Air Force (USAF) to support development of new training systems.

The contract for Training Systems Acquisition issued under the U.S. Air Force Life Cycle Management Center sets the stage for procuring a variety of training systems elements including development, production, integration and sustainment contracts. Collins Aerospace was one of 37 companies to be selected for this $32.5 billion ceiling award.

"By leveraging our avionics systems development and existing training systems designs, Collins can deliver integrated simulation solutions to enhance mission effectiveness," said Sharon Tabori, senior director, Simulation and Training Solutions for Collins Aerospace.

The Training Systems Acquisition IV contract will assess emerging tools and technologies to bring increased training capabilities to the Air Force, supporting a variety of aircraft platforms as well as non-aircraft, system-specific simulation and training requirements.

"In a situation where speed and cost are considerations, Collins is prepared to deliver training systems across a continuum, including hardware and software solutions," said Tabori.
