Rockwell Collins’ to provide flight displays, integrated surveillance and select flight control systems for 777X
Rockwell Collins has been awarded a contract by Boeing to provide its next-generation, large-format flight displays, integrated surveillance system and select flight control systems as standard equipment on the Boeing 777X. This contract is in addition to Rockwell Collins’ previously announced award to provide the Flight Control Module for the 777X Integrated Flight Control Electronics fly-by-wire system. Together, these awards rival the content that Rockwell Collins provides Boeing for the 787 Dreamliner and triples the amount of supplier-furnished equipment that it has on the 777X when compared to previous generations of the airplane. In addition, Rockwell Collins’ Head-up Guidance System (HGS) will be available for the first time on a 777 airplane. The HGS, which is standard on the Boeing 787 Dreamliner and an airline-selectable system on the 737 MAX, projects an image onto a glass combiner mounted in front of pilots’ eyes that displays essential flight information while they simultaneously look outside the flight deck, scanning for traffic or flying an approach.
