EgyptAir has selected Rockwell Collins avionics for five A330 aircraft with an option for three additional aircraft. Deliveries are scheduled from August 2010 through 2012.
The agreement includes Rockwell Collins MultiscanTM Hazard Detection System, TTR-2100 Traffic Avoidance System, as well as a full communications, navigation and surveillance suite including the GLU-925 Multi-Mode Receiver.
“With their selection of the MultiScan Hazard Detection System, our newest Traffic Collision Avoidance system, and advanced Multi Mode Receiver for precision navigation, EgyptAir is equipped with some of the most advanced avionics available to airlines today,” said Jeff Standerski, Vice President and General Manager of Air Transport Systems for Rockwell Collins. “These systems will play an important role in delivering enhanced levels of situational awareness for EgyptAir flight crews, as well as increased operational efficiency for the airline and its passengers.”
The Rockwell Collins MultiScan Hazard Detection System analyzes and determines actual weather hazards, not simply atmospheric moisture content. The MultiScan system is derived from extensive operational experience to create a fully automatic, hands-free airborne radar system that reduces pilot workload, enhances safety and passenger comfort by minimizing unexpected turbulence encounters, and provides optimal clutter-free weather displays.
Rockwell Collins’ new TTR-2100 Traffic Collision Avoidance System (TCAS) is a traffic computer-capable TCAS derived from Rockwell Collins’ integrated surveillance product line, which offers technology that can adapt to the evolving air traffic management requirements.
