Emirates Airlines has selected a comprehensive package of Rockwell Collins avionics for 32 new Airbus A380 and 30 new Boeing 777 aircraft. Aircraft deliveries are in progress and will continue through 2015.
The agreement was commemorated today at a signing ceremony at the Dubai Airshow.
The deal includes Rockwell Collins' award winning MultiScan(tm) Threat Detection System and the GLU-925 Multi-Mode Receiver (MMR), the industry's first MMR certified for precision landing using either Global Navigation Satellite Systems (GNSS) or Instrument Landing Systems (ILS).
Emirates also selected the following sensors: ADF-900 Automatic Direction Finder, DME-900 Distance Measuring Equipment, HFS-900D High Speed Data Radio, VHF-2100 Very High Frequency Transceiver, CPL-920D Coupling Unit, and VOR-900 VHF Omnidirectional Radio.
"This important win signifies the strength of the long-standing, trusted relationship we have with one of the most respected airlines in the world," said Claude Alber, vice president and managing director of Europe, the Middle East and Africa (EuMEA) for Rockwell Collins. "We commend Emirates for selecting the most advanced communication, navigation and surveillance systems available which will make for a smoother and safer travel experience."
