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
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
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.
