Boeing selects Rockwell Collins flight displays, integrated surveillance and select flight control systems for 777X

Rockwell Collins has been awarded a contract by Boeing to provide its next-generation, large-format flight displays, integrated surveillance system and select flight control systems as standard equipment on the Boeing 777X.

This contract is in addition to Rockwell Collins' previously announced award to provide the Flight Control Module for the 777X Integrated Flight Control Electronics fly-by-wire system. Together, these awards rival the content that Rockwell Collins provides Boeing for the 787 Dreamliner and triples the amount of supplier-furnished equipment that it has on the 777X when compared to previous generations of the airplane.

“This award for the Boeing 777X represents the culmination of our long-term strategy to provide common, state-of-the-art flight deck technologies on Boeing's next-generation airplanes, including the 787 Dreamliner and 737 MAX,” said Kent Statler, executive vice president and chief operating officer, Commercial Systems for Rockwell Collins. “By creating commonality among these flight decks, airlines will benefit from the latest innovations while realizing reduced operating costs and pilot training time.”

The new 777X flight deck will feature five configurable 15.1-inch landscape LCD displays―four across the console and one in the control stand―that will increase situational awareness and efficiency. The displays are also featured on the Boeing 787 Dreamliner and 737 MAX.

The integrated surveillance system (ISS), which first debuted on the Boeing 787 Dreamliner, brings together Rockwell Collins' MultiScan™ weather radar, traffic collision and avoidance, Mode S surveillance, and terrain awareness and warning capabilities into a single system, delivering valuable savings in size, weight and power requirements. The ISS also is compliant with the upcoming ADS-B Out mandate and includes ADS-B In traffic applications.

In addition, Rockwell Collins' Head-up Guidance System (HGS) will be available for the first time on a 777 airplane. The HGS, which is standard on the Boeing 787 Dreamliner and an airline-selectable system on the 737 MAX, projects an image onto a glass combiner mounted in front of pilots' eyes that displays essential flight information while they simultaneously look outside the flight deck, scanning for traffic or flying an approach.

Additional Rockwell Collins flight controls systems selected for the 777X include the control stand, digital audio system, mode control panel and primary control damper.

Boeing has 300 orders and commitments for the 777X, with first deliveries planned for 2020.
