India Strategic - - AIR FORCE DAY SPECIAL -

CEDAR RAPIDS, IOWA. Boe­ing has se­lected Rock­well Collins to pro­vide its in­dus­try-lead­ing touch­screen flight dis­plays for all five flight deck dis­plays on the new Boe­ing 777X. The ad­vanced touch­screen ca­pa­bil­ity will make the flight deck more in­tu­itive for pi­lots and more ef­fi­cient for flight op­er­a­tions. This is the first time a com­mer­cial air trans­port air­craft will be equipped with touch­screen for­ward flight dis­plays. “Touch­screens are ev­ery­where in our lives and we ap­plaud Boe­ing for tak­ing the bold step to em­brace this next evo­lu­tion in flight deck tech­nol­ogy for an ad­vanced air­craft like the 777X,” said Kent Statler, ex­ec­u­tive vice pres­i­dent and chief op­er­at­ing of­fi­cer, Com­mer­cial Sys­tems for Rock­well Collins. “A touch- con­trolled flight deck en­vi­ron­ment makes it eas­ier for pi­lots to man­age in­for­ma­tion and do their jobs, and speeds up the process to com­plete tasks.”

Boe­ing’s se­lec­tion of Rock­well Collins for the 777X touch­screen dis­plays adds to the num­ber of so­lu­tions that Rock­well Collins will pro­vide on the air­craft, in­clud­ing the in­te­grated sur­veil­lance sys­tem with Mul­tiS­can ™ weather radar, se­lect flight con­trols, Avion­ics Gate­way se­cure server router and op­tional dual Head- up Guid­ance Sys­tem.

Boe­ing has 300 orders and com­mit­ments for the 777X, with first de­liv­er­ies planned for 2020.
