Rockwell Collins, Boeing To Bring New Flight Deck To 757/767 Aircraft

Companies Jointly Developed Upgrades Inspired By The Dreamliner

Rockwell Collins announced today a new program to bring a series of innovative technologies to the flight deck of Boeing 757/767 airplanes. Jointly developed by Rockwell Collins and Boeing, and inspired by flight deck improvements offered on the Boeing 787 Dreamliner, the advanced flight deck technology will be available for retrofit on existing Boeing 767 and 757 airplanes. Supplemental type certification is expected in the 2nd quarter of 2014.

“The open architecture design of the advanced systems that Rockwell Collins developed for the Dreamliner is what makes its seamless integration into other platforms possible,” said Jeff Standerski, vice president and general manager, Air Transport Systems for Rockwell Collins. “With more than 1,600 Boeing 767 and 757 aircraft currently in operation, airlines worldwide will benefit from the high levels of efficiency and situational awareness enhancements this new technology brings, all while being installed cost effectively with minimal aircraft downtime.”

The all-new 757 and 767 flight deck features the following technologies:

  • Comprehensive electronic flight instrument and engine indicating crew alerting advanced flight display system featuring three large-format, landscape displays which provide significantly higher levels of situational awareness and reliability. Each display provides two independently controlled display windows to replace six cathode ray tube displays and numerous analog instruments.
  • Advanced NextGen communication and surveillance systems – with optimized viewing on the advanced displays - provisions for future airspace modernization around the globe, including ADS-B In applications, controller-pilot datalink, airport taxi maps, and surface guidance.

Additionally, Rockwell Collins will offer an Integrated Head-up Guidance System (HGS) with future SVS capability for improved situation awareness, more efficient operations through all phases of flight, including departures and approaches in low-visibility conditions, thunderstorm diversion, and quick, at-a-glance flight path monitoring.
