Rockwell Collins at NBAA 2015: Right solutions, connecting all flight phases—all from one company
AeroBD | The AERO news Company…CEDAR RAPIDS, Iowa, Nov. 26, 2015 : Rockwell Collins will be featuring its latest innovations for the flight deck, cabin and flight support services at the National Business Aviation Association (NBAA) 2015 Convention and Exhibition, taking place Nov. 17-19 in Las Vegas. During the show, the company will introduce a new cloud-based content service for the cabin and unveil its latest Pro Line Fusion® flight deck program.
In addition, a number of announcements will be made about enhancements to Rockwell Collins’ award-winning ARINCDirectSM flight support and connectivity services, as well as a new ARINCDirect customer. At the Rockwell Collins exhibit (#8807), experts will be on hand to discuss the company’s new Corporate Aircraft Service Program (CASP) offerings that provide aircraft customers with more flexibility for maintenance and service.
Another highlight this year is Rockwell Collins’ King Air 250 with Pro Line Fusion, featuring the industry’s only certified touch screen primary flight displays. The aircraft will be available for NBAA attendees to visit at Henderson Executive Airport.
Pro Line Fusion® – Pro Line Fusion offers a broad range of capabilities that spans across all business aircraft. The system provides essential flight information through easy-to-use graphical-rich interfaces, including high-integrity head-up guidance featuring synthetic and enhanced vision and the industry’s first touch-screen flight displays. Rockwell Collins has earned a number of industry awards for the innovations it is bringing to Pro Line Fusion, including a Gold Edison Award for synthetic vision on head-up display.
Head-up Guidance System (HGSTM)- Rockwell Collins leads the commercial head-up display market segment. By effectively eliminating the need for pilots to continually transition from head-down to head-up, out-the-window view during critical phases of flight, HGS provides enhanced situational awareness and energy management in VFR and IFR flight conditions.
EVS-3000 Enhanced Vision System – Available on both head-up and head-down displays, the EVS-3000 includes a proprietary multi-spectral EVS sensor, developed by Rockwell Collins, that significantly improves detection of outside terrain, hazards and obstacles in low-visibility conditions caused by weather phenomena such as fog. The EVS-3000 also brings the industry-first ability to fully detect LED lighting, which is increasingly utilized by airports as a runway lighting solution.
