Rockwell Collins selected for U.S. Army Ground Soldier Ensemble program


CEDAR RAPIDS, Iowa - Rockwell Collins has been awarded a contract for the Technology Development Phase of the U.S. Army Ground Soldier Ensemble (GSE) program. The base contract for Rockwell Collins is valued at $12.1 million.

Upon completion of the Technology Development Phase, which includes creation and refinement of a GSE prototype, the Army will conduct development and limited user testing. After appropriate approvals have been obtained, the Army intends to award a competitive contract for GSE production.

GSE focuses on providing mature technologies, that when integrated together on the soldier, minimize size, weight and power while providing improved situational awareness and network connectivity capabilities for the soldier.

“With GSE, we’re leveraging our experience into full soldier systems utilizing soldier-worn displays and navigation systems used in combat-proven systems such as Land Warrior,” said Bruce King, vice president and general manager of Surface Solutions for Rockwell Collins. “Our proven technologies and innovative GSE solution will incorporate the navigation, display, video processing, mass storage, computing and information assurance capabilities of Rockwell Collins and our teammate Elbit Systems of America to bring unmatched situational awareness to the warfighter while increasing mission effectiveness.”
