BOC Aviation selects Rockwell Collins’ avionics for 74 new 737 MAX aircraft
SINGAPORE (Feb. 6, 2018) – BOC Aviation has selected Rockwell Collins’ advanced avionics, including MultiScan™ ThreatTrack weather radar, GLU-2100 Multi-Mode Receiver (MMR) and Traffic Alert and Collision Avoidance (TCAS II) traffic computer TTR-2100, as a baseline configuration on 74 Boeing 737 MAX aircraft that begin delivery later this year. In addition, the contract includes the option for Rockwell Collins Iridium® ICS-300 SATCOM unit, which is the only Iridium SATCOM solution approved for Boeing platforms. This product provides long-range voice and data link communications that improve operational efficiency.
“After providing BOC Aviation with our proven suite of avionics systems for 33 Next-Generation Boeing 737 aircraft last year, we were honored that they again chose Rockwell Collins for their newest fleet of 737 MAX aircraft,” said Jim Walker, vice president and managing director, Asia Pacific for Rockwell Collins. “This latest commercial contract is among a number of key civil and military projects that allow us to contribute to the region’s ongoing technological growth, as well as providing airlines with the latest flight decks to ensure passenger safety.”
Following the recent acquisition of B/E Aerospace, a world leader in interior cabin products, Rockwell Collins’ presence on the 737 MAX has expanded beyond avionics through its new Interior Systems business to include an integrated aft galley and lavatory complex, lavatory, interior lighting and passenger oxygen systems as standard equipment on every aircraft. A variety of selectable cabin options such as passenger seating, food and beverage preparation, portable oxygen devices and crew masks are also available.
