Rockwell Collins expands capability of its Pro Line 21 avionics for Bombardier Challenger 300 and Challenger 350 business jets

Rockwell Collins today announced a series of enhancements to its Pro Line 21™ avionics for Bombardier business aircraft. The avionics system, which Bombardier will market as Pro Line 21™ Advanced, significantly enhances mission performance, increases airport access and enables future airspace operations, and is available on both the recently launched Challenger 350 and the Challenger 300 jets.

“This is the most capable Pro Line 21 avionics upgrade available, made possible by its flexible architecture,” said Greg Irmen, vice president and general manager, Business and Regional Systems for Rockwell Collins. “The unique missions and range of the Challenger 350 aircraft call for high-value capabilities that are now being implemented to Pro Line 21's already robust feature set.”

Key capabilities being implemented in Pro Line 21™ Advanced include:

• Localizer Performance with Vertical (LPV) guidance

• RNP basic (RNP > 0.3)

• Required Navigation Performance Authorization Required (RNP AR 0.3)

• Future Air Navigation System (FANS 1/A)

• Synthetic Vision System (SVS)

• Automatic Dependent Surveillance-Broadcast (ADS-B Out), including DO-260A capability

• Controller-Pilot Data Link Communications (CPDLC) for Link 2000+

Additionally, Rockwell Collins industry-leading MultiScan™ Threat Detection System is now available for both the Challenger 300 and Challenger 350 jets, which provides “hands-free”, automatic weather and turbulence identification that enhances both safety and ride quality while significantly reducing pilot workload.

Pro Line 21™ Advanced also offers the newest version of Rockwell Collins' Integrated Flight Information System (IFIS), which features North American XM satellite weather − including the continental U.S. and portions of Canada and the Caribbean, uplinked global weather and paperless operations through enhanced usability of electronic charts, maps and documents. Also, operators can select Rockwell Collins' Ascend Aircraft Information Manager (AIM) for automated, wireless management of flight operations and maintenance data anywhere in the world.
