Rockwell Collins’ Pro Line Fusion selected for AW609
Rockwell Collins has entered new market territory with the selection of its Pro Line Fusion integrated avionics for AgustaWestland’s AW609 TiltRotor aircraft. The selection marks the first European customer for the Pro Line Fusion product.
Pro Line Fusion is a 14 inch (35.5 cm) touch-control primary flight display that enables natural, eyes-forward operation and enhanced situational awareness through all phases of flight. It provides advanced communication, navigation and surveillance systems, and will render the AW609 aircraft capable of single-pilot operations under instrument flight rule conditions.
According to the company, this is the first announced forward-fit application of Rockwell Collins’ touch-control primary flight displays.
Claude Alber, vice president and managing director of Europe, the Middle East and Africa (EuMEA) for Rockwell Collins, said: ‘This is a very important win for Rockwell Collins as it demonstrates the extreme flexibility and advanced capabilities of our newest avionics offering, and deepens relationships with our customers. Pro Line Fusion is a perfect fit for the unique, multi-role characteristics of the AW609’.
Pro Line Fusion entered into service in March 2012 and is now featured on 15 announced platforms ranging from turboprops and light business jets to air transport and military aircraft.
