Rockwell Collins announced Monday that it will showcase Combined Vision System, a flight Deck Technology, at Paris Air Show 2015.
Rockwell Collins’ Combined Vision System fuses enhanced vision and synthetic vision on a head-up display. It is a prime example of transformational flight deck technologies that harness the power of information.
By combining real and synthetic views in front of the pilot’s eyes, operators will be able to maintain optimum awareness, especially in low-visibility conditions.
Rockwell Collins is also showcasing another flight deck technology that is new MultiScan ThreatTrack weather radar. It provides atmospheric threat assessment capabilities. The system goes beyond hail and lightning prediction within a thunderstorm cell then it alerts pilots to the threats adjacent to or above the cell.
In addition, the new radar features two levels of turbulence detection, severe and ride-quality. The two levels more accurately informs flight crews of the type of turbulence in their path.
Apart from flight deck technologies, the company will also display network solution, TrueNet, for the first time at Paris Air Show.
The TruNet is the industry’s first software defined networked communications solution that includes ground, airborne and handheld radios, advanced networking waveforms, apps, ancillaries and services for ensuring secure connectivity between ground and airborne elements.
The TruNet networked communications solution creates a network that allows real-time sharing of information, including video, imagery, and voice, across an IP system that can be accessed by allies in a mission, regardless of where they are on the ground or in the air.
The system even allows data to be filtered and shared with individuals depending on their security levels, providing limited access to certain materials based on clearance.
Rockwell is also displaying another network communication solution, ARINC MultiLinkSM Flight Tracking for the first time at Paris Air Show.
The ARINC MultiLinkSM Flight Tracking solution brings together multiple data sources to reliably report the location of an aircraft anywhere in the world.
In addition to utilizing Rockwell Collins’ proprietary high-frequency data link (HFDL) performance data, the service merges multiple other data sources including ADS-C, ADS-B, ASDI radar data, Eurocontrol position information and ACARS position reports.
