CAAS cockpit for H-47s(click to view full) Honeywell Inc. Defense and Space Electronic Systems in Clearwater, FL received a $5.2 million firm-fixed-price contract modification, exercising an option to purchase 66 embedded global positioning system/ inertial navigation system (EGIs) production install units for the CH-47 Chinook helicopter. Work will be complete by June 2008, and will be conducted through the tri-service EGI office at Wright-Patterson Air Force Base, OH. The Headquarters Aeronautical Systems Center at Wright-Patterson AFB issued the contract (FA8626-06-C-2065/P00002). GPS/INS navigation systems as production installs tend be limited to two varieties of Chinook these days: the new CH-47F Chinooks and the Special Forces MH-47Gs, which share the Common Avionics Architecture System (CAAS) cockpit.
