Company will provide Interim Contractor Support

Provides support for the new Risk Management Framework (RMF) certification process

CEDAR RAPIDS, Iowa (July 25, 2017) Rockwell Collins was recently awarded an Interim Contractor Support (ICS) contract by the CRIIS System Program Office at Eglin Air Force Base that includes field support, repair and security maintenance of the currently fielded CRIIS program. The program will allow test ranges to stay certified under the new Risk Management Framework (RMF) and the legacy Defense Information Assurance Certification and Accreditation Process (DIACAP).

Under the contract, Rockwell Collins will provide traditional product maintenance and repair, training, logistics and sparing support. Additionally, quarterly reviews and updates will be performed to the system security controls to maintain compliance with the applicable Security Technical Implementation Guides (STIGs).

RMF provides a disciplined and structured process to integrate information security and risk management activities, said Troy Brunk, vice president and general manager, Communication, Navigation and Electronic Warfare Solutions for Rockwell Collins. Well be doing periodic system updates under the RMF process through ICS so the ranges will always have a current authority to operate.

Rockwell Collins, CRIIS System Program Office personnel, and DoD test and training range personnel will continue to work together to ensure the multiple independent levels of security (MILS) certifications completed will continue to meet the DoDs needs for advanced and high assurance security operational requirements.

Rockwell Collins is the prime contractor and systems integrator for the next-generation military test range system that will replace the Advanced Range Data System (ARDS) currently in use at major U.S. military test ranges. CRIIS equipment supports a variety of platforms, including advanced fifth-generation aircraft, and implements the DoDs vision of common test and training infrastructure for improved operational realism.
