Rockwell Collins
: 30 May, 2008  (New Product)
Rockwell Collins' HGS®-6000 Head Up Guidance System has been selected by Cessna for its new Citation Columbus business jet, which is expected to debut in 2014. Rockwell Collins' HGS will be the first head up display ever installed on a Cessna Aircraft.
'By adding Rockwell Collins' HGS to the Pro Line Fusion flight deck, Citation Columbus operators will be equipped with leading HGS technology that delivers the benefits of enhanced low-visibility operations, improved energy management and dependability,' said Dave Austin, senior director, Head Up Guidance Systems for Rockwell Collins. 'The HGS also has the capability to support synthetic and enhanced vision in concert with the head-down displays to further improve situational awareness.'
'Columbus customers have indicated that the Head up Guidance System will be a requirement for many flight departments',' said Cessna Columbus Program Manager Joe Hepburn. 'Having the HGS on board now only improves what will be the most advanced cockpit in the industry when we begin deliveries.'
The Rockwell Collins HGS-6000 series, featuring advanced active-matrix liquid crystal display technology, presents critical flight information in the pilot's forward field of view. Aircraft flight path and attitude symbols appear overlaying the outside scene enhancing situational awareness, improving energy management and increasing touchdown precision.
The HGS-6000 series is designed for the future with growth capacity to support emerging technologies such as synthetic vision and surface guidance which will further improve safety of operations.
Rockwell Collins is a pioneer in the development and deployment of innovative communication and aviation electronic solutions for both commercial and government applications. Our expertise in flight deck avionics, cabin electronics, mission communications, information management and simulation and training is delivered by 20,000 employees, and a global service and support network that crosses 27 countries.
