IndiGo selects Rockwell Collins’ advanced systems for its A320neo aircraft

BANGALORE (Feb. 18, 2015) — India-based airline, IndiGo, has selected Rockwell Collins’ advanced avionics systems, including its MultiScan ThreatTrack™ weather radar and Multi-Mode Receiver (MMR), for its Airbus A320neo (new engine option) family of aircraft. Deliveries for the first 30 confirmed orders will begin later this year.

“This agreement is significant because India is a key growth region for Rockwell Collins,” said Jim Walker, vice president and managing director, International and Service Solutions, Asia Pacific for Rockwell Collins. “Our systems will increase efficiency for IndiGo with better weather decision-making tools and more precise navigation.”

MultiScan ThreatTrack is the latest evolution of Rockwell Collins’ MultiScan weather radar solution, which was brought to market in 2002 and was the first with fully automatic, “hands-free” operation. MultiScan ThreatTrack is the only commercial airborne radar offered by both Airbus and Boeing that delivers market-first capabilities, including Two-Level Turbulence Detection and Predictive OverFlight™ Protection, while enabling inferred hail and lightning detection.

Rockwell Collins’ GLU-925 MMR, the first certified GPS Landing System receiver, enables high-integrity navigation, including RNP AR, Category III ILS and Category I Global Positioning Landing System approaches. The MMR also enables GPS position and availability requirements for ADS-B Out mandates.

IndiGo has also selected the full suite of Rockwell Collins avionics sensors, including the ADF-900 Automatic Direction Finder, DME-2100 Distance Measuring Equipment, VHF-2100 Transceiver, HFS-900D and VOR-900 Omnidirectional Radio.
