Nippon Cargo Airlines will use the Rockwell Collins avionics suite on its six new Boeing 747-400F aircraft. Deliveries are set to begin in October 2007 and run through February 2009. Among the avionics selected was the GLU-925 Multi-Mode Receiver (MMR), an integrated unit that provides the aircraft’s primary position, velocity and time reference and enables precision landing capability. The MMR also offers instrument landing system capability and high-integrity, satellite-based positioning for navigation and future landing functions. The system is designed to meet future air traffic management requirements while offering commonality across fleet types. Other Rockwell Collins equipment chosen by Nippon Cargo Airlines includes the ADF-900 Automatic Direction Finder, DME-900 Distance Measuring Equipment, HFS-900D High Frequency System, CPL-920D Coupling Unit, the VOR-900 VHF Omnidirectional Radio, the CMU-900 Communication Management Unit with VHF Data Radio, SAT-906 Satellite Communication System and the TTR-921 TCAS.
