The mobile nature of the Transportable Blackhawk Operations Simulator (T-BOS) makes it possible to take training to pilots in the field, saving time and resources.

The Kingdom of Bahrain selected the Rockwell Collins Transportable Blackhawk Operations Simulator (T-BOS) to train its UH-60M Blackhawk helicopter pilots. The T-BOS will be delivered to the government of Bahrain under a Foreign Military Sale contract administered by the U.S. Army's Utility Helicopter Project Office. The Bahrain T-BOS is the second foreign sale of the T-BOS system, the first to be delivered to United Arab Emirates in early 2010. T-BOS is air, land, and sea transportable and can be ready for training within 8 h of arrival due to its organic power and environmental control unit. Currently in operation at Fort Rucker, AL, Fort Campbell, KY, Fort Riley, KS, and Fort Indiantown Gap, PA, additional T-BOS devices are scheduled to be delivered to Fort Rucker and Fort Bragg, NC, later this year.
