GE wins avionics and power systems for Gulfstream's G500/G600

GE Aviation is supplying the data concentration and network, the advanced power management system and the advanced health management system to Gulfstream Aerospace Corporation for the G500/G600 business jet aircraft.

"We are thrilled to be launching some of the most advanced electrical power and avionics technologies with Gulfstream. Gulfstream is a leader in business jets and this proven technology will clearly be a differentiator for the G500/600 in the marketplace," said Brad Mottier, president of Business & General Aviation and Integrated Systems for GE Aviation.

The power management system for the G500/G600 will build on the G650 secondary power system including GE's modular power tile technology, while adding primary power distribution, reducing wiring and utility function controllers. The GE integration of the power system provides a flexible composition and significantly reduces integration risk. Aircraft manufacturers achieve more control through a configurable software application.

"This is the first business jet application of an integrated data network incorporating multiple aircraft systems," noted Alan Caslavka, president of Avionics & Digital Systems for GE Aviation. "We announced the first health management system for business jets with the G650 and we're excited to bring these advanced systems to the G500/G600."

The data concentration and network for the G500/G600 builds on GE's core computing system from the Boeing 787 and is a new offering for business jets. The system provides a highly configurable integrated data network (analog, digital via multiple communication protocols) for the aircraft and offers a way to seamlessly connect avionics and utility functions. Using GE's sophisticated tool suite, the data concentration and network system can be rapidly re-configured, enabling efficient integration and significantly reducing cost of change over the life of the airplane.

The advanced health management system builds on GE's technology that powers Gulfstream's PlaneConnectHTM™ (Health & Trend Monitoring) system on the G650. The system will include enhanced compute monitoring of more than 9,000 parameters with real-time communications through satellite, Wi-Fi transmission and 3G/cellular.
