System Cert Expected In 2010; Lineage Deliveries To Start
Embraer has selected Elbit Systems of America, LLC, to supply
its Kollsman EVS II (Enhanced Vision System) for the Lineage 1000
jet. This optional item will be offered in combination with
Rockwell Collins’ Head-Up Guidance System, model 5600E.
"We welcome Elbit Systems of America as the supplier of the
Kollsman EVS II for the Lineage 1000 jet," said Henrique
Langenegger, Embraer Vice President, Programs–Executive Jets.
"This system improves the capability of business aircraft to
execute precision and non-precision approaches and safely land in
fog, rain, snow, and other reduced visibility conditions."
The optional Kollsman EVS II, combined with Rockwell
Collins’ head-up display, will also provide Lineage 1000
customers with improved situational awareness during all phases of
flight and on-ground operations. The system’s certification
is expected by 2010.
Furthermore, the Lineage 1000’s integrated Primus Epic
avionics suite offers pilots such cutting-edge technologies as
fly-by-wire, auto-throttle, weather radar with turbulence
detection, and five Liquid Crystal Display (LCD) multifunction
At the present time, there are four Lineage 1000 jets at PATS
Aircraft Completions, a division of DeCrane Aerospace having their
interiors installed. Based on Embraer's E-190 commercial airliner,
the first Lineage 1000 is due for delivery later this year, upon
certification by the FAA.
