CEDAR RAPIDS, Iowa, 17 Dec. 2015. Lockheed Martin Commercial Flight Training engineers are incorporating Rockwell Collins’ integrated visual systems in two Airbus A320 full flight simulators from Lockheed based at Airbus’s new training centers in Mexico City, Mexico.
“Our integrated visual systems are proven in the most challenging training exercises, which is especially valuable for airlines whose routes take them to some of the busiest and most difficult airports in the region,” says LeAnn Ridgeway, vice president, simulation and training solutions for Rockwell Collins. “In addition, our visual system solution delivers a significant reduction in lifecycle cost. This aligns perfectly with the Training by Airbus’ strategy to ensure service and support throughout the operational life of an airline’s Airbus fleet.”
Rockwell Collins’ integrated visual system is available for commercial and military training platforms. The image generation systems feature long-life, laser-illuminated projector technology; a whole Earth environment with high-resolution, geo-typical imagery with an expansive library of certified airport models to create high-fidelity realism; and an open, scalable architecture to save cost by minimizing hardware replacement over the life of the system.
Rockwell Collins develops and deploys communication and aviation electronic solutions for both commercial and government applications: flight deck avionics, cabin electronics, mission communications, simulation and training, and information management.
