Package Includes Radar, Satcom, And More To Follow
Air China Cargo has selected
Rockwell Collins sensors, radar and satellite communications for
two Boeing 747-400F aircraft. The agreement also calls for an
option on three additional aircraft. Deliveries are scheduled to
begin in November.
The WXR-2100 MultiScan Hazard Weather Detection System is
included in the avionics package. MultiScan is a fully automatic
radar that reduces pilot workload and enhances safety and passenger
comfort by reducing unexpected turbulence encounters. MultiScan
provides optimal weather detection from the nose of the aircraft to
320 nautical miles.
"We're pleased that Air China Cargo sees Rockwell Collins as a
provider of best-value avionics solutions for their fleet
operation," said Kelly Ortberg, vice president and general manager
of Air Transport Systems for Rockwell Collins.
Other Rockwell Collins equipment chosen by Air China Cargo
includes the GLU-920 Multi-Mode Receiver, ADF-900 Automatic
Direction Finder, DME-900 Distance Measuring Equipment, HFS-900D
High Frequency System, CPL-920D Coupling Unit, LRA-900 Low-range
Radio Altimeter, VOR-900 VHF Omnidirectional Radio, VHF-920 VHF
Transceiver (VDL Mode 2), ADF-900 Automatic Direction Finder and
the SRT-2000-3 Satellite Receiver Transmitter.
