Rockwell Collins to display new technologies
July 6, 2012, Farnborough, U.K. - At this year's Farnborough International Airshow, Rockwell Collins is showcasing its newest technologies for commercial aviation and government customers, including cabin and connectivity solutions, integrated avionics, networked communication and targeting systems. The company also plans to announce a number of new avionics and service contracts with international airlines and government organizations.
"Farnborough's status as one of the largest global events for our industry provides the perfect backdrop to discuss our latest program wins and demonstrate the new capabilities we're bringing to the next generation of commercial and military aircraft around the world," said Rockwell Collins Chairman, President and CEO Clay Jones.
"From being the primary avionics provider for all U.S. tanker programs to major positions on new commercial aircraft in Asia, Europe, Latin America, Middle East and beyond, our company is looking forward to the benefits our technology will be bringing the aviation industry for many years to come."
Rockwell Collins' open systems architecture approach to avionics, pioneered nearly 15 years ago, combined with industry-leading investment in research and development, has positioned the company as a trusted provider of advanced technology for many current and new platforms that will be a focus for this year's show.
