LAS VEGAS--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Rockwell Collins’ Pro Line Fusion® avionics system and Primary Flight Control Computer (PFCC) have been selected for the Bombardier* Global 7000* and Global 8000* aircraft, both of which feature the Global Vision* flight deck.

“This announcement is a testament to how the industry-leading capabilities and flexibility of Pro Line Fusion make it the right solution for a wide range of platforms, including the highest level of business aircraft”

“This announcement is a testament to how the industry-leading capabilities and flexibility of Pro Line Fusion make it the right solution for a wide range of platforms, including the highest level of business aircraft,” said Greg Irmen, vice president and general manager, Business and Regional Systems for Rockwell Collins. “Pro Line Fusion brings flight deck commonality, along with numerous industry-first capabilities to the Global* family of aircraft, offering unprecedented levels of safety, situational awareness and efficiency.”

The Pro Line Fusion configuration selected by Bombardier for the Global 7000 and Global 8000 business jets includes the following standard features:

  • An empowering, eyes-forward human interface featuring the first and only synthetic vision on the head-up display, as well as enhanced vision;
  • Four high-resolution 15-inch diagonal LCD displays, the largest head-down displays available in the industry, that work in concert with Rockwell Collins’ HGS-6000 Head-Up Guidance Systems (HGS®);
  • Rockwell Collins’ award-winning MultiScan™ Threat Detection System, which provides optimal, clutter-free weather information that reduces pilot workload and enhances safety and passenger comfort by minimizing unexpected turbulence encounters;
  • User-friendly graphical flight planning capability and dual Integrated Flight Information Systems (IFIS) with electronic charts and enhanced maps that reduce pilot workload;
  • The latest technologies to accommodate future airspace requirements, including Aeronautical Telecommunications Network (ATN) and Future Air Navigation System Controller-Pilot Data Link Communication (FANS CPDLC); triple Advanced Flight Management Systems with Wide Area Augmentation System Localizer Performance with Vertical Guidance (WAAS/LPV) and Required Navigation Performance (RNP) capabilities; and a Traffic Surveillance System with Automatic Dependent Surveillance Broadcast (ADS-B) capabilities.

The Rockwell Collins PFCC is a core component of the fly-by-wire system featured on the Global 7000 and Global 8000 business jets. It commands the aircraft during flight via electronic signal to the aircraft control surface actuators rather than traditional mechanical means. This allows for the introduction of a range of computer controlled enhancements to benefit the pilot, passenger and operator.

The patented Rockwell Collins PFCC allows hosting of the most critical level aircraft functions and provides an enabling platform to execute complex aircraft flight control laws, optimize aircraft fuel efficiency and enhance overall passenger ride comfort. The PFCC’s inherent redundant design characteristics and safety features offer the highest availability for these ultra-long-range mission aircraft. Pro Line Fusion was certified in June on the Global 6000* ultra-long-range business aircraft. The system has been selected for 11 announced aircraft platforms across the business aviation, commercial air transport and military market segments.
