Bombardier selects Rockwell Collins Pro Line FusionTM for Global jet family avionics

In a win that marks its debut in long-range and ultra long-range business jets, Rockwell Collins announced it has been selected as the avionics systems integrator for Bombardier's Global Express XRS and Global 5000 aircraft. This also marks the debut of Pro Line FusionTM, a new avionics offering featuring the most advanced flight deck technology available.  

The announcement was made today at the National Business Aviation Association's (NBAA) 60th Annual Meeting and Convention in Atlanta.

"We are honored to have been selected to apply Pro Line Fusion to Bombardier's flagship business jet and view this as a continuation of a long relationship built on trust," said Denny Helgeson, vice president and general manager of Business and Regional Systems for Rockwell Collins. "Pro Line Fusion complements Bombardier's new Global Vision flight deck with key technological advancements, such as Synthetic-Enhanced Vision using the largest high-resolution displays available, a progressive human-machine interface, and a broad array of new communications, navigation and surveillance capabilities.  Additionally, Pro Line Fusion incorporates information management technologies that ease many maintenance and flight operational tasks, improving efficiency.   

"All these elements will make it easier for Global Express XRS and Global 5000 jet pilots to do their job, while providing a smoother ride for passengers and delivering improved efficiency to flight operations," said Helgeson.  

"The new Global Vision flight deck featuring the Rockwell Collins Pro Line Fusion raises the benchmark for business jet cockpit environments," said Eric Martel, vice-president and general manager, Challenger and Global programs. "We are thrilled to offer our Global aircraft customers an advanced flight deck environment which can grow according to future requirements, in line with the overall Global aircraft platform."  

Some of the standard features on the Global Vision flight deck include: four high resolution 15-inch diagonal LCD displays working in concert with the HGS-6000 Head-Up Guidance Systems (HGS®); Synthetic-Enhanced Vision; MultiScanTM Weather Radar; Advanced human machine interface including graphical flight planning capability; dual Integrated Flight Information Systems (IFIS) with electronic charts and enhanced maps; Aeronautical Telecommunications Network (ATN) and Future Air Navigation System Controller-Pilot Data Link Communication (FANS CPDLC); triple Advanced Flight Management Systems with Wide Area Augmentation System Localizer Precision Vertical (WAAS/LPV) and Required Navigation Performance (RNP) capabilities; and a Traffic Surveillance System with Automatic Direct Surveillance Broadcast (ADS-B) capabilities.

In addition to features available at entry into service, Bombardier and Rockwell Collins have jointly planned a series of technology updates as the Air Traffic Control infrastructure evolves.  These include advanced display and guidance features based on emerging CNS/ATM technologies.
