Rockwell Collins Pro Line Fusion and Primary Flight Control Computer Selected for Bombardier Global 7000 and Global 8000 Jets
Rockwell Collins' (NYSE:COL) Pro Line Fusion avionics system and Primary Flight Control Computer (PFCC) have been selected for the Bombardier Global 7000 and Global 8000 aircraft, both of which feature the Global Vision flight deck.
?This announcement is a testament to how the industry-leading capabilities and flexibility of Pro Line Fusion make it the right solution for a wide range of platforms, including the highest level of business aircraft,? said Greg Irmen, vice president and general manager, Business and Regional Systems for Rockwell Collins. ?Pro Line Fusion brings flight deck commonality, along with numerous industry-first capabilities to the Global family of aircraft, offering unprecedented levels of safety, situational awareness and efficiency.?
The Rockwell Collins PFCC is a core component of the fly-by-wire system featured on the Global 7000 and Global 8000 business jets. It commands the aircraft during flight via electronic signal to the aircraft control surface actuators rather than traditional mechanical means. This allows for the introduction of a range of computer controlled enhancements to benefit the pilot, passenger and operator.
The patented Rockwell Collins PFCC allows hosting of the most critical level aircraft functions and provides an enabling platform to execute complex aircraft flight control laws, optimize aircraft fuel efficiency and enhance overall passenger ride comfort. The PFCC's inherent redundant design characteristics and safety features offer the highest availability for these ultra-long-range mission aircraft. Pro Line Fusion was certified in June on the Global 6000 ultra-long-range business aircraft. The system has been selected for 11 announced aircraft platforms across the business aviation, commercial air transport and military market segments.
Rockwell Collins is a pioneer in the development and deployment of innovative communication and aviation electronic solutions for both commercial and government applications. Our expertise in flight deck avionics, cabin electronics, mission communications, information management, and simulation and training is delivered by 20,000 employees, and a global service and support network that crosses 27 countries.
