Singapore Airlines has selected Rockwell Collins avionics, including its WXR-2100 MultiScan™ Threat Detection System and GLU-925 Multi-Mode Receiver (MMR), for up to 15 new Airbus A330s. Deliveries are expected to begin in 2013.
“Singapore Airlines continues to select our most advanced avionics systems for its wide-body Airbus aircraft,” said TC Chan, vice president and managing director, Asia Pacific for Rockwell Collins. “Our proven avionics – which are installed on Singapore Airlines’ existing fleet of A330s − provide the airline with highly reliable navigation, communication and safety enhancements for optimal flight operations at its worldwide destinations.”
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.
