Rockwell Collins today announced that Dubai-based flydubai has selected a suite of Rockwell Collins avionics, including the Head-up Guidance System (HGS™), MultiScan ThreatTrack™ weather radar and datalink communications system for 11 Next-Generation Boeing 737 aircraft. Deliveries will take place during 2016 and 2017.
The latest agreement, announced at the Dubai Airshow, marks the continuation of a strong relationship that Rockwell Collins has established with flydubai since it was founded in 2008.
Rockwell Collins HGS-4000 system features manual guidance to touchdown allowing for Category III approach and landing down to 600 ft / 200 M Runway Visual Range (RVR), low-visibility takeoff as low as 300 ft / 75 M RVR and lower-than-standard Category I approach minima as low as 1400 ft / 350 M RVR. The HGS-4000 also has numerous safety features including specific symbology for tailstrike avoidance, TCAS alerts, as well as awareness and recovery from unusual attitude and windshear events.
MultiScan ThreatTrack is the only commercial airborne radar offered by both Airbus and Boeing that delivers market-first capabilities, including Two-Level Turbulence Detection and Predictive OverFlight™ Protection, while enabling inferred hail and lightning prediction.
GLU-925 MMR, the first certified GPS Landing System receiver, enables high-integrity navigation, including RNP AR, Category III ILS and Category I Global Positioning Landing System approaches. The MMR also enables GPS position and availability requirements for ADS-B Out mandates.
Rockwell Collins is also providing a comprehensive communication and navigation suite as part of the avionics package for flydubai.
