Rockwell Collins high-fidelity image generation systems featured on new Sukhoi Superjet 100 simulators
Three Sukhoi Superjet 100 full-flight simulators featuring Rockwell Collins image generation and projection systems are successfully operating in SuperJet International training centers in Moscow and Venice, as well as in Aeroflot Airlines training facilities.
Sukhoi Civil Aircraft Company, the manufacturer of Sukhoi Superjet 100 aircraft, purchased the simulators, which feature Rockwell Collins’ EP™-1000CT image generation system.

Rockwell Collins image generation systems are software-centric, can run on a range of hardware platforms, and are certified to meet FAA/JAA Level D (and equivalent) flight training standards. The systems use graphic chip sets manufactured and designed at Rockwell Collins to provide superior graphics processing power and compatibility with commercial off-the-shelf LCoS (liquid crystal on silicon) projectors.
“Our image generation systems deliver exceptional realism in a reliable, competitively priced package,” said LeAnn Ridgeway, vice president and general manager, Simulation and Training Solutions for Rockwell Collins.
