Rockwell Collins MultiScan ThreatTrack Weather Radar Now 777 Certified

Taiwan-Based EVA Air First To Take Delivery Of A Triple 7 Equipped With The System

Rockwell Collins’ MultiScan ThreatTrack weather radar is now certified and flying on Boeing 777 aircraft. Taiwan-based EVA Air was the first airline to take delivery of and operate a new 777 equipped with the advanced airborne radar system that brings unprecedented capabilities for avoiding significant weather threats.

“Accurate information about "what’s ahead" is critically essential to pilots, especially when flying passengers on the world’s largest twinjet,” said Steve Timm, vice president and general manager, Air Transport Systems for Rockwell Collins. “MultiScan ThreatTrack provides flight crews with a more defined picture of potentially disruptive weather threats, ultimately increasing passenger satisfaction as a result of smoother flights and more on-time arrivals.”

MultiScan ThreatTrack goes beyond hail and lightning prediction within a thunderstorm cell and alerts pilots to these significant threats adjacent to or above the cell. In addition, the new radar is the first in the industry to feature two levels of turbulence detection—severe and ride quality—which more accurately informs flight crews of the type of turbulence in their path.

Also unique to MultiScan ThreatTrack is its patented Predictive Overflight Protection, which tracks thunderstorm cells ahead and below the airplane, measures growth rate, predicts bow-wave turbulence and indicates potential threats in the airplane’s flight path.

Rockwell Collins’ new air transport weather radar is not limited to in-production Boeing 777 airplanes—the system has also been certified for the Boeing 777 aftermarket. Through a relatively minor hardware and software upgrade by Rockwell Collins and Boeing Commercial Aviation Services, operators of fielded 777 aircraft equipped with previous-generation MultiScan radar can take advantage of ThreatTrack’s new safety-enhancing benefits.

MultiScan ThreatTrack is also available for new and currently fielded Boeing 737 airplanes.
