TSO'd: Rockwell Collins LAAS-capable GLU-925 MMR

Rockwell Collins has received the industry’s first Technical Standard Order approval for a Multi-mode Receiver (MMR) with Local Area Augmentation System (LAAS) functionality.

The Collins GLU-925 MMR is the most advanced system to date, and is the first to include LAAS and GPS landing system (GLS) in addition to ILS and GNSS. GLS holds promise for bringing flexible and economical precision approach capability to runways and airports not currently served by the traditional ILS. The system will be offerable for the Boeing 737-NG this fall, with other Boeing platforms to follow. The GLU-925 with FLS (FMS Landing System) functionality will be offerable for Airbus platforms in the fall of 2005.

“Increased use of GNSS navigation is part of Civil Aviation Authorities’ long-term plans for enhanced airspace management worldwide,” said Kelly Ortberg, vice president of Air Transport Systems for Rockwell Collins. “The new GLU-925 extends the use of satellite navigation from enroute and terminal operations into the arena of precision approaches.”

Rockwell Collins’ family of MMR integrated navigation units provides the aircraft’s primary position, velocity and time reference. Rockwell Collins has fielded a variety of MMRs that include ILS, VHF Omnidirectional Range (VOR), MLS, Marker Beacon and GPS, to meet the operating requirements of the military and commercial air transport community.
