China Cargo Airlines selects Rockwell Collins’ avionics for 10 Boeing 777s


Zhuhai, CHINA - China Cargo Airlines has selected Rockwell Collins to provide a comprehensive package of communication, navigation and surveillance avionics for 10 Boeing 777 aircraft. Deliveries of these aircraft are scheduled to begin in December 2009 and continue through 2013.

“Our close relationship with all levels of leadership at China Cargo Airlines and our superior customer support capabilities have provided the foundation for this win” said Jeff Standerski, vice president and general manager of Air Transport for Rockwell Collins. “The avionics package selected includes our MultiScan™ weather radar, which continues to be a differentiator when it comes to enabling safer, smoother and more efficient flights.”

Rockwell Collins’ award-winning WXR-2100 MultiScan Hazard Detection is the first and only radar that analyzes and determines actual weather hazards, not simply atmospheric moisture content. The MultiScan system is a fully automatic, hands-free airborne radar system with more than five years of operational experience that reduces pilot workload and enhances safety and passenger comfort by minimizing unexpected turbulence encounters, and provides optimal clutter-free weather.

Among the products selected is the Rockwell Collins GLU-925 Multi-Mode Receiver (MMR). The GLU-925 is the first MMR certified for precision landing using either Global Navigation Satellite Systems (GNSS) or Instrument Landing Systems (ILS). The GLU-925 is the primary navigation sensor for all phases of flight, including the stringent Required Navigation Performance (RNP) requirement of 0.1 n.m.

Other equipment chosen by China Cargo Airlines includes Rockwell Collins’ ADF-900 Automatic Direction Finder, DME-900 Distance Measuring Equipment, HFS-900D High Frequency Data Radio, VHF-2100 multi-mode, Very High Frequency (VHF), LRA-900 Low-range Radio Altimeter, and VOR-900 VHF Omnidirectional Range receiver.
