SINGAPORE, 17 Feb. 2012. BOC Aviation executives have selected Rockwell Collins avionics, including the company’s WXR-2100 MultiScan Threat Detection System and GLU-925 Multi-Mode Receiver (MMR), to serve as the baseline for up to 30 new Airbus A320 aircraft, deliveries of which begin this year. The chosen Rockwell Collins baseline avionics package also includes Automatic Direction Finder, Distance Measuring Equipment, High Speed Data Radio, a Very High Frequency Transceiver, and Omnidirectional Radio.
“This win signifies BOC Aviation’s commitment to provide advanced, proven avionics solutions for more efficient and reliable flight operations to its global customer base that spans over 40 airlines,” says TC Chan, vice president and managing director, Asia Pacific for Rockwell Collins.
Rockwell Collins’ award-winning MultiScan Threat Detection System is an automatic, hands-free airborne radar system; whereas MultiScan provides optimal clutter-free weather information that reduces pilot workload and enhances safety by minimizing unexpected turbulence encounters.
The GLU-925 is the first MMR certified for precision landing using either Global Navigation Satellite Systems or Instrument Landing Systems, according to the company. The GLU-925 is the primary navigation sensor for all phases of flight, and meets the stringent Required Navigation Performance requirement of 0.1 n.m.
Rockwell Collins has service centers in Singapore, China, and Australia, as well as dozens of locations throughout the world to support and service its avionics on BOC Aviation’s fleet.
