China Southern selects Rockwell Collins avionics for 16 new Airbus aircraft

Nov 13, 2012 (M2 PRESSWIRE via COMTEX) -- China Southern has selected a comprehensive package of Rockwell Collins avionics for 16 new Airbus A330 aircraft. The agreement was commemorated today at a signing ceremony at Airshow China 2012.

The deal includes Rockwell Collins' award winning MultiScan(TM) Threat Detection System, 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), and SAT-2100 satellite communications system.

"It's been a great pleasure to work with China Southern to create an avionics suite for their A330 aircraft that will bring them high levels of efficiency, safety and situational awareness and world-class service and support," said TC Chan, vice president and managing director, Asia Pacific for Rockwell Collins. "The systems we're providing naturally benefit the passengers with a smoother, more pleasant ride." Rockwell Collins' industry-leading WXR-2100 MultiScan(TM) Threat Detection System - with more than 4,100 systems flying on over 145 airlines today - provides superior 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, all presented through an optimized, clutter-free display that 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 nm. 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.

The SAT-2100 is a compact, lightweight and economic Inmarsat satellite communications system that enables real-time information for passengers and crew. It operates multi-channel voice, facsimile and two-way PC data exchange capability. The SAT-2100B also enables up to two simultaneous Swift64 or SwiftBroadband channels using its HST-2110B and HCM-2100B companions.

China Southern 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.
