PARIS (June 15, 2015) - Rockwell Collins today released its latest e-book titled “Harnessing the Power of Aviation’s Information Age” in conjunction with the Paris Air Show, taking place June 15-21.

The new e-book, which addresses the future opportunities that exist in flight deck systems, inflight entertainment and connectivity solutions (IFEC), networks, airport operations and the global airspace, is authored by industry experts from Rockwell Collins.

In the book's introduction, Jeff Standerski, senior vice president of Information Management Services, and Kent Statler, executive vice president and chief operating officer, Commercial Systems for Rockwell Collins, state, “The aviation industry is in the midst of a new information age.

Beyond the aircraft, cutting-edge innovations are creating faster and more secure air and ground networks and more streamlined airline and airport operations. These developments are making a seamless, secure and integrated aviation ecosphere a reality."
