Gulfstream selects Rockwell Collins as fleetwide HGS supplier

Beginning in 2009, Rockwell Collins' new HGS-6000 Head-Up Guidance System (HGS®) series will be featured on new aircraft delivered by Gulfstream Aerospace. The HGS-6000 will be standard equipment on Gulfstream G450 and G550 aircraft, and optional equipment on the G150, G200, G350 and G500 aircraft.

"We're teaming with Gulfstream to provide a modular HGS solution that utilizes our industry-leading head-up display technology," said John Desmond, vice president, Head-Up Guidance Systems for Rockwell Collins. "We look forward to delivering the benefits of enhanced low-visibility operations, improved energy management and dependability to Gulfstream operators."

"We are pleased to add Rockwell Collins to our team of suppliers for advanced vision products," said Pres Henne, senior vice president, Programs, Engineering and Test, Gulfstream Aerospace. "This is the first time we are designing an advanced Head-Up Display and Guidance system for our entire family of Gulfstream aircraft.  Many features and operations will be common to the entire fleet.  It will also allow us to develop and host other advanced vision technologies, such as Synthetic Vision, when they become available."

The Rockwell Collins HGS-6000, featuring advanced active-matrix liquid crystal display technology, presents critical flight information in the pilot's forward field of view.  Aircraft flight path and attitude symbols appear overlaying the outside scene enhancing situational awareness, improving energy management and increasing touchdown precision. The Rockwell Collins HGS for Gulfstream provides both the brightest image over the widest HUD field-of-view in the industry while improving installed head clearance by more than 50 percent.

The new all-digital display will allow the pilot to see an integrated display of flight information and an infrared image from Gulfstream's Enhanced Vision System (EVS) in almost all weather conditions.   The HGS-6000 is designed for the future with growth capacity to support emerging technologies such as synthetic vision and surface guidance which will further improve safety of operations.
