BOC Aviation selects Rockwell Collins avionics for up to 30 new Airbus A320s

BOC Aviation has selected Rockwell Collins avionics as baseline, including its WXR-2100 MultiScan™ Threat Detection System and GLU-925 Multi-Mode Receiver (MMR), for up to 30 new Airbus A320 aircraft. Deliveries of the aircraft begin this year.

The selected Rockwell Collins baseline avionics package also includes Automatic Direction Finder, Distance Measuring Equipment, High Speed Data Radio, Very High Frequency Transceiver and Omnidirectional Radio.

At a signing ceremony held today at the 2012 Singapore Airshow, Robert Martin, Managing Director and Chief Executive Officer of BOC Aviation, said “Rockwell Collins has been our choice baseline supplier of avionics for A320 aircraft for many years. We are pleased to offer their reliable and flexible fleet solutions to our customers.”

“This win signifies BOC Aviation’s commitment to provide advanced, proven avionics solutions for more efficient and reliable flight operations to its global customer base that spans over 40 airlines,” said TC Chan, vice president and managing director, Asia Pacific for Rockwell Collins. “We look forward to continuing our strong, trusted relationship with one of the world’s premier leasing companies.”  

Rockwell Collins’ award-winning MultiScan Threat Detection System is a fully automatic, hands-free airborne radar system. MultiScan provides optimal clutter-free weather information that reduces pilot workload and enhances safety and passenger comfort by minimizing unexpected turbulence encounters.

The advanced GLU-925 is the first MMR certified for precision landing using either Global Navigation Satellite Systems or Instrument Landing Systems. The GLU-925 is the primary navigation sensor for all phases of flight, and meets the stringent Required Navigation Performance requirement of 0.1 n.m.
