Oman Air selects full suite of Rockwell Collins avionics and TCAS II for new Boeing 737 fleet
Oman Air has selected a full suite of Rockwell Collins avionics, including the company’s most advanced weather radar, multi-mode receiver and next-generation Traffic Alert and Collision Avoidance (TCAS II) offering for 11 new Boeing Next-Generation 737s. Deliveries will begin in late 2014.
Oman Air’s selection includes Rockwell Collins’ MultiScan™ Threat Detection System, which is a fully automatic airborne weather radar system that combines the latest weather science with advanced engineering concepts to identify and analyze thunderstorm cells, and display the weather threat. The end result is fewer flight diversions, which leads to lower fuel burn, and greater passenger comfort due to minimizing unexpected turbulent encounters.

The latest version of MultiScan features many new capabilities that enable the prediction and display of hail and lightning potential, thunderstorm-related bow-wave turbulence, and storm cell tracking.
Oman Air also selected Rockwell Collins’ GLU-925 Multi-Mode Receiver (MMR) that enables airlines and operators to take advantage of evolving Required Navigation Performance (RNP)/Area Navigation (RNAV) and Automatic Dependent Surveillance-Broadcast (ADS-B) capabilities. The GLU-925 fulfills the requirements for aircraft navigation position source, Category III Instrument Landing System (ILS), Category I Global Positioning Landing System (GLS), accessing RNP/RNAV airspace (down to RNP Authorization Required 0.1), and meets the GPS position and availability requirements for ADS-B Out mandates.
For reliable TCAS II operations, Oman Air will utilize Rockwell Collins’ next-generation TTR-2100 traffic computer, which also enables future ADS-B In applications.
