We're always on the lookout for new systems that will help
reduce the cockpit workload, and Rockwell Collins seems to have
come up with one in its latest Pro Line Fusion avionics suite.
Pro Line Fusion, which provides an integrated flight deck to
ensure interoperability between systems, will debut on the
Bombardier Global family. Pro Line Fusion will feature high
resolution 15-inch diagonal LCD displays working in concert with
Head-Up Guidance Systems (HGS), graphical flight planning,
synthetic and enhanced vision and Rockwell Collins' award-winning
MultiScan™ Hazard Detection system. Voice recognition
technology will be a future capability of the system.
Rockwell Collins told ANN its Pro Line Fusion solution provides
extensive situational awareness, while offering information enabled
capabilities and flexible, adaptable integration. Data is displayed
on 15-inch high-resolution displays. The advanced human machine
interface allows for high speed display interfaces that facilitate
point-and-click access to flight planning, aircraft performance
monitoring and hazard avoidance.
With Synthetic-Enhanced Vision on the head-down displays, Pro
Line Fusion operators are equipped for situational awareness in low
visibility conditions and unfamiliar territory. Synthetic-Enhanced
Vision technology integrates synthetically generated scenes with
real-time enhanced vision imagery allowing flight crews to operate
with improved situational awareness and safety.
Pro Line Fusion incorporates Rockwell Collins' Head-Up Guidance
System, which presents critical flight information in the pilot's
forward field of view. Aircraft flight path, attitude symbols, and
a wire frame presentation of synthetic vision overlay the outside
scene enhancing situational awareness, improving energy management,
and increasing touchdown precision.
The system is designed to accommodate technologies for current
and future airspace requirements such as Controller Pilot Data Link
Communications (CPDLC), Required Navigation Performance (RNP)
navigation and self-separation. The company says the system is
scaleable from single pilot to ultra-long range aircraft.
