Rockwell Collins Becomes Lead Supplier of HBC for Airbus Aircraft

Airbus has selected Rockwell Collins as a lead supplier of High-Bandwidth Connectivity (HBC) for the Airbus A320 single-aisle family of aircraft, as well as long-range A330 and A380 aircraft.

Under the terms of the agreement, airlines purchasing Airbus aircraft can select HBC from Rockwell Collins to meet the growing demand for high-speed connectivity.

In our day-to-day conversations with our airline customers, the need for high-speed connectivity is top of mind. The solution we're providing meets the significant pressure airlines are getting from their passengers to provide a superior connectivity service while flying, said Greg Irmen, vice president and general manager, Flight Controls and Information Systems, Rockwell Collins. We're excited to be part of the movement to bring people together around the world, no matter where they may be.

As a lead supplier, Rockwell Collins will collaborate with Airbus to develop and deploy both a linefit and retrofit HBC system to ensure an end-to-end managed SATCOM solution.
