AirAsia has selected a comprehensive suite of
Rockwell Collins communication, navigation and surveillance
systems, including MultiScan ThreatTrack weather radar and GLU-925
Multi-Mode Receiver (MMR), for 36 new Airbus A320s.
AirAsia is expanding its avionics maintenance agreement with
Rockwell Collins to include its new Airbus A320 fleet.
companies entered into a long-term, flight-hour-based maintenance
agreement for service of Rockwell Collins avionics on the
airline’s new A320s, bringing the number of Rockwell
Collins-serviced AirAsia aircraft to 211.
“We’re pleased that AirAsia continues to put its
trust in us to deliver reliable, proven avionics solutions for
their operations, all supported by our world-class service at a
predictable cost,” said Colin Mahoney, senior vice president, International and Services Solutions for Rockwell Collins.
MultiScan ThreatTrack goes beyond hail and
lightning prediction within a thunderstorm cell and alerts pilots
to these significant threats adjacent to, or above the cell.
In addition, the new radar features
two levels of turbulence detection—severe and ride-quality—which
more accurately informs flight crews of the type of turbulence in their path. MultiScan ThreatTrack is expected to be certified on
Airbus aircraft in 2015.
Rockwell Collins’ GLU-925 MMR
enables airlines and operators to take advantage of evolving
Required Navigation Performance (RNP)/Area Navigation (RNAV) and
Automatic Dependent Surveillance-Broadcast (ADS-B) capabilities.
The GLU-925 fulfills the requirements for aircraft navigation
position source, Category III Instrument Landing System (ILS), Category I Global Positioning Landing System (GLS), accessing
RNP/RNAV airspace (down to RNP Authorization Required 0.1), and
meets the GPS position and availability requirements for ADS-B Out
