Rockwell Collins said German airline Air Berlin will use its MultiScan Hazard Detection System, Multi Mode Receiver (MMR) and Passenger Address Unit (PAU) for 85 Boeing 737NG aircraft. Deliveries are scheduled to begin in April 2008. Rockwell Collins said its WXR-2100 MultiScan Hazard Detection System is the only weather radar in the market which analyzes and determines actual weather hazards, not simply atmospheric moisture content. MultiScan is an automatic, hands-free airborne weather radar system. The advanced system reduces pilot workload, enhances safety and passenger comfort by minimizing unexpected turbulence encounters, and provides optimal clutter free weather detection from the nose of the aircraft to 320 nautical miles.
