'Version 2' Enhancements Available For Rockwell Collins Airshow 3D Moving Maps

Upgrade Utilizes NASA's Blue Marble Map Data

Rockwell Collins announced Thursday that Version 2 software enhancements for its Airshow 4000 Moving Map System for business jets are now available and in production. The new software features dramatic 3D enhancements and updates the look of Rockwell Collins’ Airshow 3D Moving Map product lines.

“With more than 4,000 business jet operators relying on our Airshow technology today, we put a priority on continually evolving this offering,” said Steve Timm, vice president and general manager, Information Management for Rockwell Collins. “The Version 2 enhancements are the best we’ve had yet in terms of adding new customizable options and features that focus on information that is unique to the airborne experience. We think our customers will truly be ‘wowed’ by the new aspects of Airshow 4000’s Moving Map capabilities.”

Version 2 software includes a new graphical design utilizing NASA’s Blue Marble map data, which is based on satellite imagery. New features and performance enhancements add additional capabilities to the widely-used moving map system. Additionally, Airshow 4000 with Version 2 software supports IP-based connectivity over high-speed and broadband data systems, augmenting existing satellite telephone connectivity and providing faster, more reliable upload of up-to-the-minute Airshow Network programming.

Version 2, the new baseline software for Airshow 4000, is now available for new orders. Existing Airshow 4000 customers can upgrade to Version 2 software through a custom software configuration that may require a hardware modification. Software trade-in and performance programs are available for upgrading to Version 2.
