Pro Line Fusion in flight testing

11th May 2009 - 17:58 GMT | by The Shephard News Team


Rockwell Collins is flight testing its Pro Line Fusion integrated avionics system which has been selcted for both the Bombardier CSeries family and the Mitsubishi MRJ family (pictured). The flights are taking place on Rockwell Collins’ own test aircraft.

"The successful Pro Line Fusion flight tests mark an exciting step forward in delivering a truly innovative system that scales new aircraft platforms from business to commercial airline jets,” said Greg Irmen, vice-president and general manager of business and regional systems for Rockwell Collins. “And while the current economic environment has its challenges, we are fully committed and looking forward to delivering this important next-generation avionics solution to our customers.”
The company highlights the key design elements of Pro Line Fusion as: extensive situational awareness with large format, high resolution 15” LCD displays, synthetic and enhanced vision and MultiScan weather radar; a user interface that features intuitive controls with point and click access, and information windows that are context sensitive for different phases of flight; flexible, adaptable open systems architecture featuring interface standards to ease accommodation of new technologies and future airspace requirements; and information-enabled design that applies a networked system with unprecedented ability for interoperability between onboard and ground systems. This feature eases maintenance efforts, including integrated cabin and flight deck avionics diagnostics.

The first aircraft from each of the CSeries and MRJ families is scheduled to enter service in 2013.
