Rockwell Collins Head-Up Guidance System certified on G450 and G550 aircraft

Rockwell Collins announced today that its HGS-6250 Head-Up Guidance System (HGS) has been certified for Gulfstream G450 and G550 aircraft. The announcement was made at the National Business Aviation Association's (NBAA) Annual Meeting & Convention taking place this week.

The HGS-6250 will be standard equipment on Gulfstream G450, G550, G650 aircraft, and optional equipment on the G250, G350 and G500 aircraft.

"Working together with Gulfstream on the HGS-6250 has been insightful and rewarding for both teams," said Dave Austin, senior director, Head-Up Guidance Systems for Rockwell Collins. "The team's dedication to develop and certify a truly innovative HGS will provide Gulfstream operators greater flexibility for planning missions, as well as new enhancements in safety."

The HGS-6250 provides precise head-up guidance cues to enhance situational awareness during all phases of flight. With the advanced LCD and LED-based technology of the Rockwell Collins HGS, combined with live infrared imagery from the Gulfstream Enhanced Vision System™, operators have the flexibility to land more places, more often, in more weather conditions.

Additional HGS-6250 features include:

·          The widest commercial HUD field-of-view (42 degrees horizontal by 30 degrees vertical) and unprecedented display brightness and contrast

·          Full enhanced vision system (EVS) capability

·          Flare advisory cueing to help pilots consistently establish the optimum sink rate for precise, repeatable touchdowns

·          Crosswind and windshear indications to enable more accurate flight path control while keeping pilots' attention focused outside the windscreen

·          An inertial flight path vector that provides instantaneous indication of the airplane's path

·          Industry-leading pilot head clearance

·          Intuitive unusual attitude recovery and TCAS symbology

Rockwell Collins was selected as the fleetwide HGS supplier for Gulfstream in July 2006.
