Rockwell Collins to provide EFB Class 2 hardware for A320 family

Airbus has selected Rockwell Collins to provide side displays and docking stations for the new Class 2 electronic flight bag (EFB) on its A320 family of aircraft for both production and aftermarket applications. The system helps improve operational efficiency by electronically connecting airline and pilot operations.  

"In response to the airlines' requirements for greater information access in the flight deck, Rockwell Collins looks forward to working with Airbus to provide this EFB solution," said Steve Timm, vice president and general manager for Information Management at Rockwell Collins. "Our Class 2 EFB solution represents a continued partnership in working with Airbus for delivering Information Management Solutions to our airline customers."  

The system being provided by Rockwell Collins includes two dedicated touch screen, large-format displays integrated in both sides of the cockpit, and two docking stations that receive aircraft parameters from the avionics. Each docking station is capable of hosting a laptop running EFB application software. The EFB allows pilots to display applications hosted on their laptop or in the FlySmart with Airbus (FSA) server on two avionics grade side displays. The interface between the laptop and the side displays meet the Class 2 EFB industry standard.  

This award comes in addition to the FSA system that Rockwell Collins has developed for the Airbus A320 family and the A330/A340. This system combines commercial off the shelf hardware and software solutions with avionics grade systems to run applications on-board and to link the aircraft with ground based airline networks.
