The KC-390 program is a prime example of Rockwell Collins’ ability to leverage commercial avionics technology across to military platforms

Rockwell Collins delivers Pro Line Fusion red label software to Embraer for KC-390 program

Rockwell Collins has completed on-time delivery of its Pro Line Fusion® flight test software to Embraer for its KC-390 aircraft. The red label software is now under configuration control and enables Embraer to complete the aircraft systems integration.

“This milestone is very important for Embraer to progress to their first flight and exemplifies how the KC-390 team, led by Rockwell Collins do Brazil, continued its dedication to meet its commitments to this key customer on time, and with quality content,” said Alan Prowse, vice president and managing director, Americas for Rockwell Collins.

The KC-390 program marks the first military application of Rockwell Collins' award-winning Pro Line Fusion integrated avionics system, which entered the business jet segment in 2012. It also represents the greatest content that Rockwell Collins has on an Embraer military aircraft.

To support this program, Rockwell Collins has also fully established its program management and engineering team in Brazil, which results in new jobs for the region. The team, which is fully dedicated to the KC-390 program, is co-located at Rockwell Collins do Brazil and Embraer facilities in São José dos Campos.

In addition, the company is now manufacturing components for the KC-390 program in Brazil, again demonstrating its commitment to adding jobs and transferring technology to the country. Rockwell Collins do Brazil has increased its employment by 50 percent in Brazil over the past three years, with plans to continue steady investment and growth as it adds new programs in country.
