Rockwell Collins awarded avionics contract by Continental for 100 plus aircraft
CEDAR RAPIDS, Iowa - Rockwell Collins announced today one of its largest orders from a U.S.-based airline. Continental Airlines has selected a comprehensive suite of avionics for 103 Boeing 737NG aircraft and two Boeing 777 aircraft.
“Our many years of product reliability and support have created a very positive relationship for Rockwell Collins and Continental Airlines,” said Jeff Standerski, vice president and general manager, Air Transport Systems for Rockwell Collins. “This agreement also reflects the increasing strength of the U.S. market segment as domestic airlines begin to upgrade their fleets.”
Rockwell Collins GLU-925 Multi-Mode Receiver (MMR) and HFS-900D High Frequency (HF) Data Radio are key features of the avionics package selected.
The GLU-925 MMR is the first to include Local Area Augmentation System (LAAS) and GPS landing system (GLS) functionality in addition to Instrument Landing System and Global Navigation Satellite System (GNSS) functionality. GLS offers flexible and economical precision approach capability to runways and airports not currently served by the traditional ILS.
Rockwell Collins HFS-900D Data Radio provides a low-cost, long-range data link system for fleets operating in oceanic, polar and remote land areas. When paired with the Rockwell Collins CPL-920D Digital Antenna Coupler, the HFS-900D high frequency data link (HFDL) system provides the high reliability system needed for HFDL applications.
Other avionics included by Continental include a full range of sensors, weather radar and satellite communications.
