"ANA is redefining air travel and the 787 Dreamliner will help take that experience to a new level," said Lorraine Bolsinger, president and CEO, GE Aviation Systems. "This is an opportunity for 787 partners to celebrate their role in bringing the 787 Dreamliner to ANA and the world."

GE Aviation's common core system (CCS) provides the primary computing environment for the Dreamliner. The remote data concentrators (RDC) are designed to consolidate inputs from the aircraft's systems and sensors and distribute it via the aircraft's avionics full duplex switched Ethernet network. GE developed the common core system on the Wind River VxWorks 653 partitioned operating environment. The CCS is designed, manufactured and tested at GE's facilities in Grand Rapids, Michigan and Cheltenham, UK.

GE's integrated landing gear system controls the deployment and retraction of the aircraft landing gears, including the nose landing gear steering. In addition to the normal package of mechanical hardware, GE provides the flight deck interfaces and local control electronics. The program is supported by GE's facilities in Washington State and in the UK.
