Embraer selects Rockwell Collins to provide KC-390 Cargo Handling and Aerial Delivery Control System

Rockwell Collins has been selected by Embraer to provide the Cargo Handling and Aerial Delivery Control System (CHADCS) for the Brazilian Air Force's KC-390 program.

“The CHADCS selection is a significant increase to our KC-390 content and is an example of both continuing to leverage our advanced Pro Line Fusion capabilities in expanded ways and also of innovating to address new opportunities,” said Alan Prowse, vice president and managing director, Americas, for Rockwell Collins. “The win exemplifies the continued trust that Embraer has in Rockwell Collins based on our performance on the KC-390 to date.”

CHADCS is a digital control system used to hold, monitor, and execute precision air drops of cargo, vehicles, and troops in a variety of tactical methods. The system consists of a loadmaster station with displays and controls, a network of lock control units and control panels to sense inputs, measure force, activate and release locks, along with high criticality software and processing hardware to manage the required automation, safety, and precision.

Rockwell Collins has previously been selected by Embraer to provide the first military application of the company's highly advanced Pro Line Fusion® integrated avionics system for the KC-390 program. It also represents the highest content that Rockwell Collins has on an Embraer military aircraft.
