Pro Line Fusion suite for MRJ and CSeries to include L-3 standby instrument
L-3 Avionics Systems has announced that its GH-3900 Electronic Standby Instrument System (ESIS) has been selected by Rockwell Collins for the latter's Pro Line Fusion integrated avionics system which will feature on the Mitsubishi MRJ and Bombardier CSeries families.
The contract is for 10 years with production units scheduled to begin delivery in 2012.
The GH-3900 is the next generation in L-3 Avionics’ GH series of electronic standby systems. Designed to replace conventional electromechanical standby attitude, airspeed and altitude instruments, the solid-state GH-3900 ESIS is capable of providing all three functions, plus heading, slip/skid, navigation data and vertical speed in a single three-inch flat-panel display.
The GH-3900 features an integrated air data sensor card with pitot static connections directly to the unit, which eliminates the need for a remote mounted air data computer. An active matrix liquid crystal display (AMLCD) provides readability in direct sunlight as well as dark cockpit environments. The system also has the ability to interface with the aircraft’s navigation systems.
