The U.S. Air Force selected Rockwell Collins as prime contractor to develop, integrate, and deliver the Common Range Integrated Instrumentation System (CRIIS), a next-generation military test range system. The CRIIS program will replace the Advanced Range Data System currently in use at major U.S. military test ranges. The program fulfills a critical U.S. Department of Defense requirement to provide Time, Space, and Position Information (TSPI) and system test data to support weapon system testing for a variety of platforms, including advanced aircraft, ships, helicopters, UAVs, ground vehicles, and dismounted soldiers. Rockwell Collins was one of two companies awarded phase I risk reduction contracts in 2008. Phase I, which was completed in June, required contractors to demonstrate technology that delivers enhanced TSPI, data links, and encryption technology. The Rockwell Collins team includes Cubic Defense Applications, Honeywell, and ArgonST.
