Emirates Airlines Selects Rockwell Collins Avionics For 62 New Aircraft

Full Suite Of Components To Be Installed In Airbus And Boeing Jets

Emirates Airlines said at the Dubai Air Show Monday it has selected a comprehensive package of Rockwell Collins avionics for 32 new Airbus A380 and 30 new Boeing 777 aircraft. Aircraft deliveries are in progress and will continue through 2015. The deal includes Rockwell Collins’ award winning MultiScan Threat Detection System and the GLU-925 Multi-Mode Receiver (MMR), the industry’s first MMR certified for precision landing using either Global Navigation Satellite Systems (GNSS) or Instrument Landing Systems (ILS).

Emirates also selected the following sensors: ADF-900 Automatic Direction Finder, DME-900 Distance Measuring Equipment, HFS-900D High Speed Data Radio, VHF-2100 Very High Frequency Transceiver, CPL-920D Coupling Unit, and VOR-900 VHF Omnidirectional Radio.

“This important win signifies the strength of the long-standing, trusted relationship we have with one of the most respected airlines in the world,” said Claude Alber, vice president and managing director of Europe, the Middle East and Africa (EuMEA) for Rockwell Collins. “We commend Emirates for selecting the most advanced communication, navigation and surveillance systems available which will make for a smoother and safer travel experience.”

Rockwell Collins’ WXR-2100 MultiScan Threat Detection System provides weather assessment that helps pilots easily discern between threatening and non-threatening weather. It also alerts them to other atmospheric threats that may be invisible to the naked eye - such as the potential for turbulence, lightning or hail - through an optimized, clutter-free display that the company says increases crew situational awareness while reducing pilot workload.

The advanced GLU-925 Multi-Mode Receiver is the primary navigation sensor for all phases of flight, and meets the stringent Required Navigation Performance (RNP) requirement of 0.1 n.m. As the first-ever certified GPS Landing System receiver, the Rockwell Collins GLU-925 offers rock-solid performance and dependability for Category III ILS and Performance-Based Navigation RNAV/RNP operations.
